An 11yr Wheat Whiskey, Parkers Heritage Collection 15th Edition is a high proof whiskey that focuses on wheat over corn, rye or barley.
Big, bold, creamy sweetness. Maple candies, waffle batter, honey and caramel. Light oak and char on the nose, some pepper, ethanol and a final dollop of brown butter.
Moderate mouthfeel. Fiery at first, calms down with a 10 minute rest. Sweet cream, honey, butter, maple candies and werthers caramels. Bold oak structure that keeps the dessert components in check. Light cherry note.
Long finish, sweet and savory, bold and powerful. Maple, oak, tobacco, cherry and char. Lovely.
Certainly not meek, and it's great to see Wheat Whiskey getting more attention for its strengths in the industry. This Wheat Whiskey has all the goods.
