Deep copper color. Grainy aromas of honeyed cereal, buttery toasted zucchini bread, polished wood, and pistachio nougat with supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a spicy, wheat flour, raisin, pepper and ash finish. Lots of racy grain character for cocktails.

As the name implies, wheat whiskeys have wheat as the principal grain used for distillation. Most of these are American made and are aged in oak and/or sherry barrels, giving them an amber color with a flavor profile of caramel, butterscotch, cashew and spiced raisin, among others. While this is not as large a category as many other types of whiskey, most of these wheat whiskeys are of very high quality, elegant, but often with a spicy, gutsy character. While they can be used for mixing in elegant cocktails, most are meant for sipping in a small snifter after dinner.
