Review #559. Dry Fly Distilling Wheat Whiskey Cask Strength

Review #559 | /r/Bourbon Review #310 – Dry Fly Distilling Wheat Whiskey Cask Strength

The Schtick: As the name may suggest, this is a cask strength wheated whiskey from Dry Fly in Washington.


Distiller: Dry Fly Distilling (WA)

Bottler: Dry Fly Distilling

ABV: 60% ABV

Age: 3 Years

Source: Sample


Nose: Sweet honey, caramel, mall food court Cinnabon, faint toffee. Overall, all sweet. Not a bad thing.

Taste: Thick and rich with some heat present. Caramel and toffee are prominent with some very welcome oak in the background. Really rich caramel throughout without the peppery redhots that I get in lots of other wheated whiskeys.

Finish: Long, sweet and very tame for the proof. Delicious caramel, cocoa, toffee profile here also.

Overall: Hot damn this is impressive and delicious. Complex, nice profile and not punishing. Well done, Dry Fly.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 7
