Koval Midwest Wheat, 40%

Price: $40.00 Issue: Fall 2011 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

So that's what wheat smells like: not much. The aromas here seem to be mostly yeast-derived, with a faint ripe fruitiness (undefined: peach, apple?) and alcohol heat, and a touch of wheat-origin sweet grass. Wheat's in the mouth, like chewing fresh grain with some water and alcohol. It's all there, and the finish is sweet, and it's clean, but…that's about all. White bread whiskey.
