Every so often there’s a whiskey that we’ve sampled and enjoyed on numerous occasions, but for whatever reason, have never taken the time to formally review it. Today’s review features one of these much loved but never analyzed drams.
The whiskey we’ll be discussing is Bernheim Original Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey. It was purchased by Limpd as part of a recent whiskey shopping excursion because he’s a big fan of wheat whiskeys and wheat-forward Bourbons.
Here’s what Heaven Hill Distillery, the makes of this whiskey, have to say about Bernheim Original:
This Heaven Hill Distillery original is named for the famed Bernheim Distillery here in Louisville. 7-Year-Old Wheat Whiskey, Bernheim Original is the first new style of American Whiskey to be introduced since Prohibition. Aged for 7 years in our traditional open rickhouses, Bernheim’s mellow taste is refreshingly smooth when served straight or in cocktails.
Proof: 90 Proof
Age: 7 Years Old
While Limpd is a big fan of wheat whiskey, I have always been a little lukewarm about them. To see if I was swayed during this tasting, click play on the following video:
