Breuckelen Distilling New York Malted Red Wheat Whiskey 8 Years Old
A Whole New Way to Wheat
We hand-selected this cask from Breuckelen Distilling in Brooklyn, New York. Founded in 2010, Breuckelen has been making unique and delicious whiskies that push the boundaries of traditional whiskey styles since its inception.
Wheat whiskies are generally known for being gentle and light. Not this one. Made with 100% malted red wheat, this eight-year-old single cask has a deep, rich, and powerful flavor but a soft texture, with notes of rich oak, chocolate banana bread, cranberry teacake, and ginger spice. This is the oldest single cask we’ve ever released!
