Wyoming Outryder 8 Years Old Straight American Whiskey
50% ABV, 750 ml, 8 years old
"In horseman terms, the outrider stands apart, securing the herd’s flank, whether it’s cattle or pricey thoroughbreds that he prevents from straying. Our Outryder Whiskey also stands apart, distinct and different. It’s not a bourbon. It’s not a true rye. The result is a truly singular spirit that’s great for sipping or making cocktails, on the ranch, at the track, or wherever you may ride. This Straight American Whiskey is a blend of two distinct mashbills, an almost Rye Whiskey and a High Rye Bourbon, that represents Wyoming Whiskey’s first use of Rye.
Outryder offers a taste profile not seen anywhere else in the American whiskey category. The front of the mouth experiences a light to moderate rye spice with a full, creamy mouth-feel. The rye slowly fades as the smooth characteristics of bourbon finish the Outryder experience."
