Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - The nose is full of vanilla and sugar cookie aromas. In the mouth it is intensely spiced with flavors of cinnamon, vanilla and caramel. The texture is dusty and leathery, giving a rustic mouthfeel overall. Oats and vanilla dominate the nose but offers a hint of vanilla as well. Once in the mouth it opens up into a delicate, honeyed mouthfeel but is offset by an equally mild citrus and cherry profile. Finishes effortlessly. (Apr 2014)

Distilled at Heaven Hill, Bernheim Original is the first Kentucky straight wheat whiskey. Introduced in 2000, the 5-year old whiskey is crafted from a mash bill of 51% winter wheat, as well as corn and amlted barley. It is abundant with aromas and flavors of brioche, caramel, roasted walnuts, and baking spices that create a special taste. A light but balanced whiskey.
