Brilliant copper in color. Mildly sweet with hints of vanilla and honey. Hints of toffee, berries, & spice with fresh mint, finishes with soft toasted oak and is elegant and warm. Bernheim Original Straight Wheat Whiskey was the first truly new variety of American straight whiskey introduced since Prohibition. Heaven Hill Master Distiller’s saw an opportunity to give today’s whiskey connoisseurs a unique taste experience. At its launch, Bernheim was the only straight whiskey to use winter wheat as the primary grain in its mashbill, giving it a soft, sweet flavor and medium finish. As a straight whiskey, it meets 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. Bernheim Original Wheat Whiskey is made with the same time-honored tradition our Master Distillers have passed down for generations, critics agree Bernheim is an exceptional whiskey worth tasting. Accolades WE 90-95 Initial scents are floral and wheat cracker-like; aeration adds deeper, mildly sweet aromas of sap, fresh vanilla bean and light honey. Palate entry is finely balanced with wood, moderately sweet grain and acidity; by midpalate the alcohol warms the throat with off-dry flavors of charred oak, light toffee and sap. Finishes elegant and warm. A true sipping whiskey. -Wine Enthusiast, (12/ 2005), 90-95 Points PIONEER WHISKEY OF THE YEAR – Malt Advocate Magazine GOLD MEDAL – International Spirits Challenge 94 / EXCEPTIONAL RATING – Beverage Tasting Institute
