Wyoming Whiskey, has announced the launch of a limited edition sherry finished bourbon, which is the first barrel-finished product from the Wyoming-based distillery.

Wyoming Whiskey Double Cask (50% ABV) has been produced using 5 Year Old Wyoming Whiskey bourbon, which was then finished in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks.

This latest release from the Kirby based distillery, which was developed by Head Distiller Sam Mead and Master Blender Nancy Fraley, is said to deliver autumnal notes of dried apricots, figs, stewed prunes, blackcurrants and toasted nuts. Followed by hints of candied orange peel, vanilla butter cream and molasses.

Commenting on the launch, David DeFazio, Wyoming Whiskey Co-Founder, said: “While traditional bourbon continues to be our focus, it is important to show that a variety of great whiskies can be made in Wyoming. Both our recent Outryder Straight American Whiskey and Double Cask Sherry-Finished Bourbon are outstanding. We decided to finish our five-year-old bourbon in Pedro Ximenez barrels because they complement our base spirit perfectly. We may experiment with other finishes in the future, but we’re really pleased with Double Cask’s flavour profile.”
Last month, Wyoming Whiskey announced the release of the latest batch of its Single Barrel Bourbon, which followed on from their hugely successful first two batches, which sold out upon release in November 2015.
Limited to just 110 cases, Wyoming Whiskey Double Cask, will be available later this month from specialist retailers in New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Illinois, Texas and California, for a RRP of $59.99.
