Wyoming Whiskey Outryder. Image courtesy Wyoming Whiskey. This is Wyoming Whiskey’s first attempt at a Rye-based whiskey, and I think it’s well worth repeating. Outryder is a 4-year-old bottled in bond Straight American Whiskey blended from two different mashbills: one with 48% winter rye, 40% corn, and 12% malted barley, and the second a more traditional Bourbon mashbill of 68% corn, 20% rye, and 12% malted barley. Both were distilled in November of 2011, and blended and bottled four years later.

The nose is aromatic and buttery-smooth with notes of cinnamon, allspice, a hint of charred oak, and subtle touches of clove and honey. The taste is spicy and rich with clove, allspice, a hint of cinnamon, honey, rye bagels, and orange marmalade. The finish is long with lingering spices and hints of cocoa, caramel, and honey. Excellent! (December, 2016)
