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
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!
