Release: October 2016
Price: $55
Proof: 100
Availability: 2,640 cases
Style: Bottled-in-bond whiskey

Need to know: Wyoming Whiskey blended two straight whiskeys for this limited edition using mashes of only non-GMO, Wyoming grain: The first includes 48% winter rye, 40% corn, and 12% malted barley; the second is a traditional bourbon mash bill of 68% corn, 20% winter rye, and 12% malted barley.

Whisky Advocate says: Wyoming Whiskey has focused on bourbon with good success. Their Barrel Strength Bourbon scored 92 points in Whisky Advocate Buying Guide. This is a more experimental style for them and distiller, Sam Mead, worked with master blender, Nancy Fraley, to realize the new creation.
