Old Elk Straight Wheat Whiskey is made with a mash bill of 95% soft red winter wheat and 5% malted barley.

It's aged for 5 years and bottled at 50% ABV using a "slow-cut proofing"--adding Colorado mountain water to bring the bourbon to bottling proof over weeks instead of days.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is so spicy that it's a bit like sniffing a chai. Maple syrup sweetness coats the tongue as it prepares for more aromatic gingerbread spice notes (clove, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and ginger), with a black tea earthiness lingering in the slightly hot finish. "
