Bernheim Kentucky Straight Small Batch Wheat Whiskey 7 year old
Bernheim Original Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey represents the first truly new American Whiskey style to be introduced in many generations. Whereas other whiskeys contain primarily corn, barley or rye in their recipes, Bernheim is the only type of straight whiskey which uses soft winter wheat. The result is a full-bodied, sweet, yet smooth whiskey that is produced in small batches and aged to perfection in traditional open rick warehouses.
This small-batch whiskey, with its bright copper penny color and bewitchingly sweet aromas of cocoa, mocha and fresh-baked cookies, is one of the few "straight wheat" whiskeys out there. The flavors are brisk and restrained, with leather and tobacco tones and a clean citrus and vanilla finish. Despite a relatively high proof, it still comes across as mellow and balanced. Drink straight up, with ice.
