This is the oldest craft wheated bourbon we have found, and it is from one of the very best craft distilleries in the US. And it’s freakin’ delicious.
In the middle of NY wine country sits one of the finest craft distilleries in the US – Finger Lakes Distilling. With a deep library of top-shelf whiskeys at hand, there was zero chance we could walk away with just one barrel – so we chose 3 (you’re welcome!). This 8 year, 9 month old wheated bourbon (70% white corn, 20% wheat, 10% malted barley) is a true standout from start to finish, showcasing a near-flawless palate punctuated by that classic, old-school wheater funk. Cheers!
Tasting Notes: Rounded, full-bodied flavors of orange peel and vanilla crème brulée balanced perfectly with dry oak and deep earthy notes.
