To create this 'new American Whiskey', Heaven Hill Father and Son Master Distillers, Parker and Craig Beam developed a wheat formula with a minimum of 51% winter wheat – the recipe also includes corn and malted barley. The five year old product was originally distilled in January 2000 and has since received considerable acclaim. “Our Wheat Whiskey was still an experiment for us at Heaven Hill when we first put it up to age,” said Craig Beam. “We suspected it would turn out well, but even we were surprised at how it aged and matured.” For collectors of the rare and unusual in Australia, this beautifully packaged whisky will equally impress with its gold medallion label, wheat etchings and wax closure. Very limited stocks.
Other reviews...Gentle in personality and predominantly sweet, with notes of honeyed vanilla, caramel, maple syrup, coconut cream pie, and a hint of red licorice. Underlying bright fruit, suggestions of green tea, and a dusting of cinnamon keep the whiskey lively and upbeat. A soft, toasted oak finish tames the sweetness and provides balance. The whiskey is more approachable and easier to drink than a typical bourbon containing rye-the spicy rye intensity isn’t there. Some bourbon enthusiasts will miss the challenge-and rewards-that the rye would normally provide. For this reason, this whiskey will be more appealing to drinkers of wheated bourbons (e.g., Maker’s Mark, Old Fitzgerald, W.L. Weller). It is an interesting change of pace from the standard bourbon fare, and it is a unique exploration of American whiskey without sacrificing authenticity. 83 points - www.maltadvocate.comsize>
...Brilliant copper color. Sweet toffee, roasted nut, and brown spice aromas are inviting. A silky entry leads to a very supple, dryish medium-to-full body of rich caramelized nut and creme brulee flavors. Finishes with a long, warming fade of dark caramel, stony minerality, and tingling peppery spice. A wonderfully delicious and dangerously drinkable whisky with instant appeal to lovers of fine bourbon.
