Lone Elm Small Batch Texas Straight Wheat Whiskey
Wheat Whiskey — Texas, USA
Reviewed May 4, 2022
The standard Lone Elm release at 90 pf. True wheat whiskey not wheated bourbon at 90% wheat 10% barley. Nose is nice melty caramel and maple with cream of wheat. Blast of sweet pipe tobacco and leather alongside barrel oak. Palate is rich and full with dark caramel drizzled cornbread with a more earthy tone. Pinch of raw cinnamon and that dense sweet pipe tobacco for days. Worn saddle leather and charred oak on the back end . Finish is lasting with the sweet notes complimented by some melted butter and dry hardwoods. I can see now why I get some Cowboy overtones. They share the Texas red winter wheat which must provide the wonderful sweet pipe tobacco note in both. The single barrel version of this is better with more proof but this is no slouch and worth it if sb is not available.......86/100......solid value and easy repurchase as well.......last tidbit: this is only 90 pf but can take water very well while retaining maximum flavors.....bottom line this is a Texas distillery you want to explore .
