Reaching an impressive 10 year milestone, Wyoming Whiskey commemorates it by bringing back Steve Nally to create a blend with the oldest whiskey they’ve ever released.

Claiming the title of Wyoming's first legal whiskey distillery, Wyoming Whiskey was founded in 2009 by Brad and Kate Mead and David DeFazio along with the help of former Maker’s Mark master distiller Steve Nally. Releasing a 10 year old whiskey is a major accomplishment for any distillery as many unfortunately don’t last that long. That’s why Nally with the help of master blender, Nancy Fraley hand selected 10 barrels for this milestone blend and is the oldest bourbon to date the distillery has ever released.

The bourbon’s nose starts the sip off in a great place; full of rich caramel, sugary vanilla and a mix of raspberry and orange is a job well done. The palate takes a noticeable step down in overall brightness, as it's centered around butterscotch, pecan, bundt cake, and plum. It’s also worth mentioning its very little overall sweetness except for its butterscotch and maple syrup notes. The finish is similar in its approach, featuring a smattering of dry oak and leather. Even its fruit notes are noticeably void of sweetness.

Having tasted numerous Wyoming Whiskey whiskeys over the years, I was excited to try some with a higher age statement, though what I got rather surprised me. Wyoming Whiskey 10 Year Anniversary Edition is nicely balanced - perhaps to a fault. While it's hard to ever complain about balance in a whiskey, this 10 year old blend lacks the highs and lows that can make a whiskey more exciting. It’s very even-keeled, and it holds back some of what I love about Wyoming Whiskey. Featuring some of the earliest barrels the company laid down, I have zero doubt their whiskey has evolved over the past 10 years and some of the barrels in the next few years could be stellar as their Single Barrel and National Parks releases suggest. At $200, Wyoming Whiskey 10 Year Anniversary Edition is likely best for diehards of the brand looking to taste a snapshot of what the brand was like in its earliest days when there were only a few pioneers in the craft whiskey scene.
