Wyoming Whiskey Steamboat Straight Bourbon, 45%

Price: $45 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Aromas of dry cedar, used sandpaper, and hay mingle with candied fruit—green apple Jolly Rancher, Asian pear—along with earthy tea leaves. The wood-forward palate highlights more tea leaves, dried apple rings, apple skins, gentle clove spice, and cedar. It finishes with dry wood, cloves, and a hint of dried orange peel. A peculiar whiskey that seems unsure of itself.
