Bernheim Original Wheat Whiskey 7 Year

Wheat Whiskey — Kentucky, USA

3.0 out of 5 stars
Nose is mild, with hints of fresh bread dough, vanilla, and a bit of alcohol burn. Palate starts off very smooth and decently rich, with vanilla, honey, and light brown sugar, and then goes pretty much nowhere. The finish is smooth and very slightly dry, with a floral hint at the very end. This juice is incredibly one-note, and while it's an interesting change of pace from everything else, it just doesn't have enough to keep me interested past the first sip. The closest comparison I can think of is a very, very light Irish, (Knappogue is a good example) but without the light fruit, and far fewer floral notes. Worth trying once, but not what I'm looking for in my dark spirits.
