Wyoming Whiskey takes its namesake to heart, as this isn’t just a whiskey made in Wyoming, it’s also made from Wyoming. All of its ingredients originate from the equality state, and it’s aged through five years in its dry and windy climate that sees greater temperature extremes than the majority of the continental U.S. Wyoming is known for its numerous national parks, and the company’s latest limited release honors them with each of their annual releases focusing on a specific one, with $5 from every bottle sold donated to the National Park Foundation. The 2021 release highlights Grand Teton National Park, which gets its name from the second highest peak in the state.

Coming in around the same proof, age, and price as their standard release, what makes National Parks Limited Edition qualify as a special release? This is hands down a very strong showcase of the distilling prowess of Wyoming Whiskey and how far they've come since their first bourbon in 2012. This is an elegant bourbon that charms you with its refinement and drinkability. It’s the definition of smooth, never venturing too far with spice or heat, instead zeroing in on balance. Unpretentious and straightforward, this bourbon isn’t trying to be anything that it’s not. And that's reflected not only in its flavor profile, but also its price. Very well done.
