Dry Fly Port Finish Wheat, 43%

Price: $30 Issue: Summer 2013 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Wheat whiskey, finished in huckleberry port barrels, showing a deep reddish blush, purple-pink around the edges. The fruity richness of the port wood is subdued, but present, and lays across everything else in the nose. Things become less one-dimensional on the palate, and the sweet broad grassiness of the wheat lightens the port wood influence somewhat, but it comes back in the finish. It's a decent combo, but a bit of a one-note song. Price is per 375ml.
