Amber color. Aromas and flavors of cream of wheat with honey, roasted walnuts, caramel cake, and brown sugar frosting with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, complex, medium-long finish with notes of dark chocolate shavings, vanilla bean, butterfinger bar, and wafer cookies. A round, rich and satisfying Wheat Whiskey that delivers.
