Wyoming Whiskey launched a 10 Year Anniversary Edition Straight Bourbon Whiskey to celebrate a decade of whiskey making in the Cowboy State. Put together by founding Master Distiller Steve Nally and Master Blender Nancy Fraley, the rare 10-year-old rye bourbon is made from 20 of the rarest casks at the distillery that were filled in November and December of 2011. It is the oldest product ever released by Wyoming Whiskey.
“Over the last ten years, these barrels have quietly evolved into something extraordinary,” said Wyoming Whiskey Co-Founder David DeFazio. “10 Year Anniversary Edition is in a class of its own. We are blown away by the quality and complexity of this product. It’s memorable.”
Wyoming Whiskey 10 Year Anniversary Edition Rye Bourbon features a mash bill of 68% Corn, 20% Rye, and 12% Malted Barley. Aged for 10.5 years and bottled at 48% ABV, the whiskey offers aromas of rye manhattan cocktails with brandied cherries, medjool dates in thick syrup, cayenne pepper-candied pecans, and baklava drizzled with orange blossom honey. The palate delivered candied yams with pecans and toasted marshmallows, black currant liqueur, sweet cornbread muffins with honey butter, and cinnamon toast with blackberry-maple syrup. The finish finds lingering notes of dark dried fruit mingled with warming brown baking spices.
“We are proud to honor our roots in this state with an exceptional 10-year-old whiskey created by the fusion of Wyoming water, Wyoming grains and Wyoming weather,” said Brad Mead, Co-Founder of Wyoming Whiskey. “We will always distill our whiskey the right way, not the easy way.”
Wyoming Whiskey 10 Year Anniversary Edition Rye Bourbon is priced at $199.99 per bottle. It will be available in-store in select US markets including California, Colorado, Georgia, Maine, New York, and Wyoming.
