Top 50 Spirits 2011,' Wine Enthusiast:

The first truly new American Whiskey to be introduced in many generations. Whereas others contain primarily corn, barley, or rye, Bernheim is the only type of straight whiskey which uses soft winter wheat.

This small-batch whiskey, with its bright copper penny colour and bewitchingly sweet aromas of cocoa, mocha and fresh-baked cookies, is one of the few 'straight wheat' whiskeys out there. The flavours are brisk and restrained, with leather and tobacco tones and a clean citrus and vanilla finish. Despite a relatively high proof, it still comes across as mellow and balanced. Drink straight up, with ice. (Mar 2011)" Wine Searcher: "(style: smooth) A sweet and easy nose floats brittle sweet mint candy to you. The mint smoothes the burn as the candy dissolves, and you may catch a hint of corn as the long glide of the finish starts. The wheat preponderance makes this one quite gentle and approachable. 90 proof. "

Tasting Notes

  • Nose: Warm and sweet with buttered granary toast, a hint of salt, mixed spices and a distinct morello cherry character. Cooked fruit and a defined bakery note.
  • Palate: Quite full and sweet. Freshly baked sweet buns, a stewed fruit note and a mixed nut character. There are hints of tuck shop favourites and a touch of spearmint.
  • Finish: Long and slightly dry with toasty spices.
