FATHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE

The first time I ever tried this small-batch bourbon was one evening at camp at the end of a Wyoming-pronghorn hunt. It’s hard for me not to make that connection when I enjoy it now. The whiskey is smooth and has notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and charred oak. Wyoming Whiskey has grown a lot since it first came onto the scene (and won its share of awards), and these days, you can now find a bottle in just about every state. READ MORE.

BEST CRAFT WHISKEYS UNDER $50

Wyoming Whiskey makes one of the top bourbons outside of Kentucky, and it’s one of the best kept bourbon secrets anywhere across the country. The wheated bourboon is aged for over five years in full-size barrels, making it one of the more mature craft bourbons out there, with a rich, sweet profile offering caramel and char. This one is priced to move but it’s flying under the radar. READ MORE.

Halfway between Wyoming’s Shoshone and Bighorn National Forests is the tiny town of Kirby (population 92). Kirby, WY is just up the road from the Wind River Reservation in the Bighorn Basin. It’s almost four hours from the buzz of Jackson Hole, arid, rugged, and wide open. READ MORE.

WYOMING WHISKEY BARRELSTRENGTH

Only 111 bottles of this barrel-strength Bourbon came from two casks filled in 2009 and bottled in 2015, and the nose is intense, but still buttery-smooth with a nice oakiness, vanilla, Turbinot sugar, orange blossom honey, caramel candy, fudge, and muted touches of clove and nutmeg in the background.

“Wyoming Whiskey Is For Real”

Perhaps nothing is more symbolic of the Wild West than whiskey. From John Wayne asking for a bottle of whiskey in Rio Bravo, to Augustus McCray espousing to glories of it in Lonesome Dove, it is universally recognized as the drink that helped win the west. So it seemed only fitting that Wyoming, the “Cowboy State” should have it’s own whiskey. READ MORE.
