Neat. Neck pour. Wheatley Spec’s pick barrel 13. On the nose, it is lighter and brighter than I expected. Vanilla frosting. Hint of BBQ and char. Cinnamon and baking spices. Baked apples. Leather. It is very inviting. Reminds me of 2019 Birthday Bourbon in many ways. NOT what I was expecting compared to Antique.
Nice creamy texture and it lights the tongue up with cool flavors. Wow. Taste is better than the nose. Long long legs. On the tongue, the baked apples, cinnamon sugar, and hint of cherry light up the tongue even before the swallow. Transitions to deep, rich vanilla, pastry crust. Waves of vanilla returns and some oak emerges as well.
It’s great, but it’s not over the top great. In some ways this barrel is more simplistic and straight forward than Antique, which is odd to me. The extra proof didn’t result in more flavor or spiciness, it just gave it a creamy texture and legs for miles. Antique can throw people off blind because it’s such a spicy beast. This is a more traditional wheater. Top of mind, I think the Boone County MGP 6 year wheaters beat this.
