American whiskey covers an extremely diverse flavour profile. Bourbon has a sharp, sweet jolt of vanilla. Rye has a dry, hard hitting spice. And, then, there is wheat which delivers a soft, biscuit flavour.
Wheat whiskies make up a small (but growing) area of American whiskey production. In order to be termed as a 'Wheat Whiskey' the mashbill of the whiskey must be made up of at least 51% wheat.
While most American whiskies will contain some wheat it is not that common to find one that is composed mostly of it. Distilleries such as Rock Town from Arkansas have started to experiment with this style by smoking it with hickory wood.
A soft and unusual style of whiskey that shouldn't be neglected.
