Huling Station Very Small Batch Straight Wheat, 45%
Price: $50 ● Issue: Fall 2021 ● Reviewer: Ted Simmons
Made with 83% wheat. The nose is earthy, with notes of tree bark, potting soil, and musty attic, along with spicy cayenne pepper, dried apple slices, and green tea. The palate is silky, with sustained earthiness, bitter chocolate, pistachio, and a hint of coconut. Add water and the oak is more pronounced. A mouth-coating finish has a lot to offer, with chocolate, caffe latte, and espresso.
