Gold color. Aromas of parmesan crisps, popovers with honey, and limestone with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length maple on fresh crepes, crispy waffles, and candied ginger finish. A mild Whiskey with bakeshop flavors and smooth texture.

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.
