Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - The nose is full of vanilla and sugar cookie aromas. In the mouth it is intensely spiced with flavors of cinnamon, vanilla and caramel. The texture is dusty and leathery, giving a rustic mouthfeel overall. (Apr 2014)
With an age statement of 7 years, Bernheim Original Wheat Whiskey truly is well worth the wheat. It is the only straight wheat whiskey distributed nationally. As a straight whiskey, it meets the same criteria as Bourbon or rye-aged a minimum of two years in new, charred oak barrels, distilled at less than 160 proof, and contains no coloring, flavoring or blending agents. As a small batch product, it is made with a dump of 100 barrels or less.
