  • Excerpt: Things become less one-dimensional on the palate, and the sweet broad grassiness of the wheat lightens the portwood influence somewhat, but it comes back in the finish. It’s a decent combo, but a bit of a one-note song.

  • Excerpt: As obvious as it is to say, the distillery did an excellent job of imbuing their straight wheat with attributes of port, almost to the point where one might forget that he or she is drinking whiskey.

  • Excerpt: The finish is long and warming, exotic — as a huckleberry isn’t quite a blueberry — but easy as pie. Huckleberry pie, I presume.

  • Intro:

    This is a wheated whiskey produced by a craft distiller, finished in port.

  • Nose:

    Really robust port here. Sweet candy, red hots, caramel, toffee. Really reminiscent of Old Fitzgerald Bottled in Bond. But with port.

  • Taste:

    Thin, no heat though. Cocoa, fig, faint strawberry jam. Some caramel. Not super complex, not super robust.

  • Finish:

    Short, no heat. Port is really noticeable here. Faint bitterness.

  • Overall:

    Unique but not exciting or exceptional by any stretch. The nose and palate were pretty nice though.

  • Score:

    4
