  • Intro:

    This is Bernheim Barrel Proof: a blend of 7- to 9-year-old wheat whiskey (51% wheat mashbill) that's bottled at barrel proof. The first release of 2023 (and ever), this is batch A223, and it's bottled at 59.4% ABV.

  • Nose:

    Punchy at first, the wheat can't be understated here. It's fiery and loaded with sweet butterscotch, honey, caramel and heather. This nose is packed with brown butter and enticing maple.

  • Taste:

    Rich on the palate, Bernheim Barrel Proof has a decadent texture, silky and layered with honey, butterscotch and pleasant oak. This has a beautiful structure. Caramel candies, a touch of pepper and clove, faint cinnamon and a final hit of sweet oak.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, it's powerful yet nuanced, complex and delicious. This finish carries for ages, packed full of butterscotch candies, caramel and sweet oak.

  • Overall:

    A masterpiece from Heaven Hill, my only exclamation is how wonderful and overdue it is. Wheat whiskey is here to stay.
