Arkansas's Rock Town Distillery produces this Hickory-Smoked Whiskey, a wheat whiskey with a 91% winter wheat and a 9% malted barley mashbill. They cold smoke the wheat in their own hickory smokers prior to the milling process. The whiskey is then aged in a combination of 15-gallon and 25-gallon ex-bourbon barrels and is bottled and 90 proof.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is appropriately smoky but also offers plenty of wheat and a yeasty, fermenting beer aroma, along with cereal - think a bowl of soggy Special K. Big BBQ smoke follows on the palate, although it's otherwise a bit soft and young. The finish showcases final notes of oak, wheat and vanilla, and lingering smoke."
