Triticum Straight Wheat Whiskey
A.D. Laws Whiskey House
Rob Allanson 8.8
Nose: Opening a packet of wheat crunchie chips, sweet, spicy and a metallic note.
A little vinyl note, think 35mm film cases. Dark chocolate biscuits develop.
Palate: Breakfast bars, granola and almond milk with brown sugar and honey. Citrus and chocolate tones.
Finish: Chocolate bars with pecan nuts and rum soaked raisins. Ends with salted caramel.
Comments: Sweet, but that proof punches through magnificently. Great stuff.
Sam Coyne 7.8
Nose: A nose of this won’t be enough – you’ll need a taste. Cereal, before fudge and warm custard. Freshly baked dough. A sweet treat.
Palate: A light mouthfeel, oak prickle, moving to almonds. Earthy sweetness. Summer fruits and cereals. Vegetal spice and cinnamon.
Finish: Long and spicy. Develops into menthol – becomes freshening.
Comments: Promises a lot and layers galore. Doesn’t quite live up to the nose, but delivers a decent drop.
