" Nose:The first impression is butter, then fresh baking, toasted crumpet followed by light red fruit (cherry) and allspice. Gentle, with a tricky quality, lemon meringue lifted by a subtle spiciness. Very clean and well defined. Palate:Gentle then a tingle of fresh planed oak. Reminiscent of melted rock candy with a hint of toffee and a menthol note. Very fine. Finish:Long, spicy." ~Distillery notes
At its launch, Bernheim Original Straight Wheat Whiskey was the first truly new variety of American straight wheat whiskey introduced since Prohibition. Heaven Hill Master Distillers saw an opportunity to give today's whiskey connoisseurs a unique taste experience. Bernheim was the only straight whiskey to use winter wheat as the primary grain in its mashbill, giving it a soft, sweet flavor and medium finish.
