Golden amber color. Aromas of toasted marshmallow, mixed fruit tart, marzipan, honeyed melon, and biscuit with a slightly chewy, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a seamless, appealing, medium-length cream of wheat, spumoni, salted almonds, sultanas, and peppery gingerbread finish. A bright and balanced melange of fruity notes blend with caramel-y oak and pure grain flavors; a tasty whiskey that will appeal to fans of all North American Whiskey styles.

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.
