First introduced into the market in 2005, this is the first wheat whiskey released in the US. The mash bill is predominantly winter wheat with corn and malted barley taking supporting roles. Recently (Spring 2014) this whiskey has gone from having no age statement to having one of 7 years, quite the reverse of what large whiskey brands are releasing.

Tasting Notes

"Heavily toasted bread, mild vanilla, and gentle wood spices are found as you bring the glass to your nose. Light honey and a touch of oak join the aromatics on the palate with a soft and easy to drink profile."
