OLD ELK STRAIGHT WHEAT WHISKEY
100 Proof, 50% Alc/Vol
Wheat mash bills have all the same challenges of a rye and are never an easy path to take when distilling, but Metze decided to craft Old Elk’s Straight Wheat Whiskey in the spirit of the acclaimed 95 percent rye whiskey. He applied all of his expertise and knowledge into producing another one of a kind product: a mash bill of 95 percent soft red winter wheat and five percent malted barley, aged for six years, this whiskey is a vivacious and refreshing spirit that is reinventing what it means to be a sipping whiskey.
A bright and refreshing whiskey aged for a minimum of 6 years.
Aroma: Soft, honey, fruity, cherry, vanilla and oak
Taste: Warm, peach, dried fig, vanilla, oak, yeasty, cedar
