Iowa's Cedar Ridge entered the whiskey world in the most logical possible way -- bourbon made from Iowa corn. Since then, they've expanded their portfolio, including this Wheat Whiskey, which is made from 100% winter wheat. Made in small batches and hand-numbered on the label, the whiskey has been aged in lightly charred, 15-gallon barrels.

Tasting Notes

"Find a honeyed, floral nose, with a distinctive wheat, cereal aroma, and herbaceous notes. The palate is dry, with plenty of wheat upfront, along with hay, grass, and an undercurrent of caramel and toffee. The moderate finish offers light cocoa and vanilla, with some orange peel and oak. Add an ice cube for a drier and wheatier profile that delivers dark chocolate on the finish."
