Wyoming Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey distills, ages, and bottles their own whiskey. This isn’t unusual in the craft whiskey world, but aging whiskey for five years in 53 gallon barrels is – enough to separate them from the majority of craft distillers.

Raisins, cherries, and cornbread mingle with one another. Floral notes also come into play, offsetting the sweeter elements. Nothing is overpowering, but the scents are potent enough to invite you in.
