We had high hopes for this one, and it turned out to be a winner. Wheat beer = good; wheat bread = good; wheat whiskey = very good. According to the bottle, "Bernheim Original Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey represents the first truly new American whiskey style to be introduced in many generations. Whereas other whiskeys contain primarily corn, barley or rye in their recipes, Bernheim is the only type of straight whiskey which uses soft winter wheat. The result is a full-bodied, sweet yet smooth whiskey."
