Spirit Works Straight Wheat, 45%

Price: $65 Issue: Spring 2016 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Made from 100% organic red winter wheat, aged 2 years, 1 month. Much lighter on the nose than its rye stablemate (see above); notes of butterscotch and green tea, with a bit of oaky strength. Flavors of cracked grain and light stone fruits shimmer across the tongue; the oak stays high in the mouth. Finishis light and long, moving from grain to wood at the end. Interesting and delicate for a 2 year old.
