Bernheim Original 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 seven-year-old small batch whiskey is a powerhouse. Oak and vanilla aromas skew sweet. The palate is deep and dark, silky and spicy, showing cocoa and espresso. Adding water doubles down on the espresso notes, bringing clove and black pepper forward into a big, grippy finish that sings with spice.
