Don't take your first ride with this juice with a tainted pallet. Drink some cold water first but not with. I've always been a fan of the spicier Rye bourbons for just sittin and sippin. The wheated have always been something I thought went well with cooking, mixing, and experimenting. That may be why I was so surprised at this wheat whiskey. Straight up it's very mellow, not as sweet as you might expect and definitely not spicey. Don't look for the nutty flavors, look instead for the grains. I can't identify any fruits to this but after a while i do get a little grapefruit rind off the back of my tongue. I'm on cholesterol meds so I haven;t had a grapefruit in a very long time and this brings back those memories.
When you first "chew" this, you wonder if it's been watered down, the tip of the tongue tingles a little and I'm reminded of gingerbread and toffee but it fades quickly.
I originally bought the bottle for the fancy copper label and didn't expect to think much of it. I was wrong. Not anything at all like the wheat Tennessee methods or the wheated bourbons (WLW, Pappy...).
