Using organic, local soft red winter wheat, this whiskey has no age statement, but uses eight combinations of oaks and char levels. Just as a reminder how integral the oak is to this product, the bottle contains one single toasted oak chip.

Tasting Notes

"Surprise! This whiskey is not over-oaked. Careful attention was clearly paid to the aging, as the wheat shines through and is in harmony with the wood influence. The nose has a bit of brown sugar and has that familiar, slight bready bubblegum that some wheat beers show. The whiskey itself is light with a tart, pleasant acidity that, believe it or not, might just appeal to white wine drinkers. Finish is dry and fresh. A fine sipper to whet your appetite and ready your palate. "
