Bernheim 7 Year Original Wheat Whiskey
Wheat Whiskey — Kentucky, USA
Reviewed September 18, 2022
This was the first wheat whiskey that I ever tried. I saw it for a pretty good price at $30, so I figured why not. I was pleasantly surprised. The nose is pretty light, with a touch of cinnamon and honey. The palate is sweeter than expected, with a touch of oak, nutmeg and vanilla. It's not that far off from what I would expect from a bourbon, but the finish is a bit longer than expected with some wheat toast and more sweetness. There is very little burn. For $30, I would say this is a pretty good value and a solid everyday dram. It's not very complex, but it's very smooth. I haven't tried too many other wheat whiskies, but this one was pretty good, so while it probably should be more of a 3/3.25, I'm going to bump it up to a 3.5 since it's a very good value.
