Review #713 | /r/Bourbon Review #402 – Wyoming Whiskey Waterford Wines Private Stock, Barrel 1631

The Schtick: This is a private bottling of Wyoming Whiskey’s distillate. It is 5 years old, bottled at cask strength, and bottled for Waterford Wines, a local Wisconsin retailer of wine and spirits.

Distiller: Wyoming Whiskey (Wyoming)

Bottler: Wyoming Whiskey

ABV: 55.7% ABV

Age: 5 Years

Cask: #1631

Source: Bottle, Purchased

Nose: Super fruity. Bubblegum, cotton candy, melon, honey dew, orange, cantaloupe and musty wet sawdust. The fruitiness here is off of the charts.

Taste: Medium mouthfeel, grassy and floral. Lots of honey. Wet cardboard, melon, pepper and clove. Big, bold, orange essence. Bitter rubber.

Finish: Short, hot, lemon, melon, orange and wet cardboard.

Overall: This was super interesting, but didn’t really tickle my fancy. The youth is evident and the super pervasive fruitiness was interesting but not enjoyable for me. I really enjoyed Wyoming’s Bottled in Bond, so I’m going to chalk this up to youth and cask deviation.

Thanks for reading!
