Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Delicious inviting flavors of maple candy, lemon meringue, and sandalwood show prominently on the nose of this delightful whiskey. The palate has wonderful sweet flavors of vanilla toffee and candied orange balanced by a touch of dried oak. - 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge (Great Value).April/2018
Whisky Advocate 90 points - Wheated bourbon fans will enjoy this wheat whiskey with its distinctly bourbon nose of sweet cornbread and new oak, topped off with mint and pine aromas. It starts soft on the palate, but flavors build nicely as it rolls along, delivering graham cracker, citrus fruit, pecans, and cake batter. It remains really fresh and lovely, as caramel corn and drying cocoa powder emerge on the finish. A well-crafted and easy-drinking alternative to bourbon.

With an age statement of 7 years, Bernheim Original Wheat Whiskey truly is well worth the wheat. It is the only straight wheat whiskey distributed nationally. As a straight whiskey, it meets the same criteria as Bourbon or rye-aged a minimum of two years in new, charred oak barrels, distilled at less than 160 proof, and contains no coloring, flavoring or blending agents. As a small batch product, it is made with a dump of 100 barrels or less.
