Review #750 | /r/Bourbon Review #415 – Bernheim Wheat Whiskey, McScrooge’s Selection
The Schtick: This is a well aged wheated whiskey released under the Bernheim label and selected by McScrooge’s.
Distiller: Heaven Hill
Bottler: Heaven Hill
ABV: 45% ABV
Age: 7 Years
Nose: Rich caramel, waffles, rich fruitiness. Berries, apple, pear. Creme brulee.
Taste: Medium mouthfeel, no real heat. Fruity and loaded with vanilla. Passion fruit, pear, apple and faint raspberry. Nice clove presence with healthy caramel character. Really sweet and fruity.
Finish: Long, rich and loaded with honey. Fruity character continues and balances nicely with some clove and rich vanilla.
Overall: I really enjoyed this – probably one of the better wheated releases I have had outside of WLW.
Thanks for reading!
