    Re: 100% Wheat Whiskey - Dry Fly

    Ok Stu..just to tentatively advance the alternate Wheat Whisky topic...

    http://www.scotchwhisky.net/grain/grain1.htm
    http://www.planetwhiskies.com/grainwhiskies.html
    http://www.royalmilewhiskies.com/cat...?cat_id=W_GRAI

    The links above do not specify by grain type.
    How is a Scotch single grain different from a U.S. or Canadian etc...are the grains roasted over peat? The lowland product I would expect to be lightly peated at most.

    It would make for an interesting tasting...going from domestic to import wheat whiskeys / whiskys.

    Re: 100% Wheat Whiskey - Dry Fly

    Here is another wheat grain "spirit" unaged ..by Koval

    http://www.koval-distillery.com/prod.../midwest-wheat

    I have not tried it.....their product offerings look very intriguing...will have to taste some.

    It is described as having a very Banana nose and palate of cantaloupe and dried fruit...odd.

    Re: 100% Wheat Whiskey - Dry Fly

    I picked up two bottles of this on Aug. 7th, the day it came out. The distillery sold out of 250 bottles in 90 minutes and I'm pretty sure the entire WA state sold out within a few hours. I was super lucky to even get the two bottles I did get.

    Re: 100% Wheat Whiskey - Dry Fly

    Well, I was able to get my hands on a few bottles, and I have to say... it's not bad. In fact, it's a pleasant, light 100% Washington wheat whiskey. It was bottled at 80proof, so they stretched the batch for sure, but I'd say that it's a good whiskey to include to your collection to stand next to the Bernheim.

    The longer Alcohology blog post about it is here, but over all, I'd say that I look forward to their batch a few disbursements from now (November/December is the next release of this 14month, 15gallon batch), when these smaller barrels will give way to the larger 53gallon barrel which will be at least two years old.

    Re: 100% Wheat Whiskey - Dry Fly

    I received the following e-mail from Dry Fly:

    "The next release of Dry Fly Washington Wheat Whiskey
    will be on Saturday March 27th at 8 am. A limit of 1 bottle
    per person will be in effect. The retail price will be $45.70
    due some changes in Washington's pricing policy.

    A limited number of cases will also ship to the Washington
    warehouse, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Minnesota, California,
    and Arizona."

    Re: 100% Wheat Whiskey - Dry Fly

    June update:

    "We will release Dry Fly Wheat Whiskey Batch 4.0 on Saturday
    June 12th at 8 am. As always, we limit the release to one bottle
    per person, per space in line.

    We will also release cases (IN LIMITED NUMBERS) to the Washington,
    Oregon, Idaho, and Montana liquor systems. As we receive that info,
    we'll post it!

    For those who can't make this release, we'll have release 5.0 in mid
    July. We should have a Wheat Whiskey release every month for the
    rest of the year..."

    Man, I'd sure like to try some of this stuff...

    Re: 100% Wheat Whiskey - Dry Fly

    i just picked up a bottle from batch 6 tonight at a local liquor store in Kentucky. I lived in Spokane for a while and really enjoyed Dry Fly's gin. This should be a real treat considering I have a soft spot for the Northwest. I'll report back on what I think of their juice.
