Wilderness Trail Single Barrel, Barrel Proof Rye r/Bourbon Selection

Folks who know me know how much I love Wilderness Trail, and have loved them, since I made my first trip there back in 2021. Wilderness Trail has been a gem, always under the radar, always underappreciated and I've gone on record in a number of episodes of Weekly Whiskey, podcasts with other folks, and otherwise that someday folks will regret overlooking Wilderness Trail. 

  • ABV:  52.63% ABV
  • Age:  4 Years 10 Months
  • State of Distillation: Kentucky (Wilderness Trail)
  • Tasting Notes: Luscious and rich, full of maple, tobacco, rye funk, currant and Luxardo cherries. The nose is decadent and pungent. The palate follows closely behind, combining a viscous mouthfeel with oily texture and notes of sweet tea, honey, cracked pepper, a touch of light dill and cardamom and a fat, maple back palate. I love how viscous and satisfying Wilderness Trail ryes drink, and despite their lower proofs, it's evident they're full of flavor thanks to a much lower barrel entry proof than normal. Glazed icing, buttercream and a final kick of spice and oak as the finish whisps away. Manhattan material if I've ever tried it.
