Wyoming Whiskey Eclipse Review

Wyoming Whiskey Eclipse Review

Wyoming Whiskey Eclipse is a limited edition that was only available at the distillery. Luckily I know someone at the distillery who was kind enough to send me a sample so I could give it a taste. Made from a smaller batch than normal I was most interested to see how this compared to the recent batches I’ve had to see if they balanced it out as well as they have the larger batches.

In Wyoming Whiskey’s Words: Wyoming Whiskey Eclipse

“The eclipse will scribe its shadow across Wyoming beginning in Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park and totally darken Lander, Thermopolis, and Casper as it creeps to the east and will partially darken our distillery,” said WW Co-Founder David DeFazio. “As a company founded on a commitment to Wyoming, we have created a once-in-a-lifetime expression of our Wyoming-made bourbon to accompany this once-in-a-lifetime event. While most batches are made with 40 barrels, Eclipse was created from only 24 barrels selected this spring by Sam (Mead), which means that only 1,000 cases are available.”

And with that let’s get on with the Wyoming Whiskey Eclipse review!

Wyoming Whiskey Eclipse Review

EYE
Amber

NOSE
Oak, apples, caramel, graham, corn, vanilla and a bit of spice.

PALATE
Oak, caramel, corn, vanilla and a bit of spice. Basic on the palate, but quite nice.

FINISH
Medium fade of oak, caramel, corn and cinnamon

BALANCE, BODY & FEEL
Ok balance, medium body and a soft slick feel.

OVERALL
Wyoming Whiskey Eclipse is not too bad, but it’s not insanely different than the regular Wyoming Whiskey releases going out right now. It’s one of those whiskeys that are basic and well executed but lack the depth and dynamic delivery to get it to the next level.

That all said, theWyoming Whiskey Eclipse is further proof of how far they’ve come and how they’re continuing to put out good whiskey with their releases. I have no doubt we’ll be seeing some truly excellent stuff coming from them in the next few years.

SCORE: 85/100 (B)
