Tasting Notes

For long time followers of this brand, you'll recognize just how huge of a milestone this is. If you are just coming around to this, consider it a lucky time to be a whiskey drinker to have incredible stuff like this to reach for. Created from grains grown on a single farm in the Hudson Valley in partnership with the distillery, this Wheated Bourbon (20% Wheat, 20% Malt, 60% Corn) was double pot distilled and aged for 8yrs in a new charred 53 gallon American Oak barrel all at the distillery in Brooklyn, prior to bottling at 100 proof. This has the heady sweeter side that wheaters are famous for but in incredibly complex form with notes of apples, stone fruits, rhubarb, licorice, pancakes and maple syrup, toasted pecans, brown butter and cinnamon. And incredible achievement.
