Bernheim Original Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Wheat, 45%

Price: $35 Issue: Summer 2012 Reviewer: John Hansell

This is a rare single barrel, non-chill filtered release. Straight wheat whiskeys can be almost too easy-going. Not chill-filtering adds teasing, subtle complexity. Gently sweet, with maple syrup, caramel, marzipan, and coconut cream, along with a dusting of vanilla, cinnamon, and green tea. A whiskey for a lazy Saturday afternoon...or perhaps with pancakes at brunch? (Julio's Liquors exclusive)
