    PHC 2014 - 13 yr Wheat Whisky

    I have not seen any discussion or this posted anywhere yet but just came across this article that claims the 2014 PHC will be a 13 year wheat whisky.

    http://redwhiteandbourbon.com/2014/0...wheat-whiskey/

    Seems like an interesting and surprising choice but looking forward to it if true.

    Yeah not so sure about this. Seems an odd move if true.

    I thought PoH was going to be the PH swan song

    Odd as in it is not a bourbon? Seems like an interesting bottling to me if true. And, like the author of the blog, I am not willing to underestimate the PHC offerings until I at least try them for myself!

    I am happy to see that the line seems likely to continue. And I wouldn't mind seeing that cask strength 10yo Ritt rye that Josh muses on either!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Very glad to see the line continue. Just odd to release a wheat whiskey when bourbon is the hottest thing on the planet. Not that it couldn't be spectacular, just odd.

    This is what some hoped to see as a possible next step back when Bernheim Wheat was introduced. I'll buy, as long as its not $100 or over.

    And what about this line: "Bernheim Wheat Whiskey is aged for five to seven years (soon to be age stated at seven years)" I'd welcome this too.

    No disrespect to this guy's blog, but I think I'll wait for some corroboration.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    I'm not a fan of wheat whiskey, but honestly have only tried . . . two. Yeah, two (and one of those was a craft distillery). Neither of them had any age, and while wheat whiskey doesn't excite me by itself, I can't believe they would put the PHC label on something ordinary. I think if they offer it at cask strength, it will be an automatic buy for me. If sub-100 proof . . . will have to wait for more reviews from trusted sources.

    Sounds like hearsay, so it's hard to put too much credence in it. However, 13 year old Wheat whisky just doesn't seem that exciting, but the proof is in the pudding
