    Re: PHC 2014 - 13 yr Wheat Whisky

    Put me down as a fan of Bernheim Wheat. Not an everyday pour but light and delicate and perfect for summertime sipping. With all the extra age compared to the OTS version, it could be really interesting.

    Fan here too, of Bernheim Wheat. The last couple of bottles that I have had exhibited a gorgeous doughy quality to them. It would be cool to see it at barrel proof, but even the extra aging on a potential BWW PHC would have me pumped to pick it up.

    Even though it may seem strange to not have a classic "bourbon" as part of the PHC, I really don't think so. I'm sure Parker Beam was part/most/all of the creation of Bernheim Wheat Whiskey to begin with. If he created it, why not have it part of his Collection?

    Curious to see the price. Will it be $80 since there's no longer a charitable donation with each bottle purchase? Stay the same, just because they can? Price increase because that's what everyone else is doing?

    I find the fact of this upcoming release totally believable,what other spectrum of stocks have yet to be explored among the PHC line thus far?I could see a wheat whiskey would be a rather good choice or a rye for that matter.I would prefer the later of the two but a 13yr Bernheim may be quite good who knows?We can all just keep our fingers crossed for a rye to be rolling out of the ricks one of these days.

    Can't say I am excited for this. There is a reason no one duplicated the bernheim wheat whiskey mashbill.

    It will sell quickly based on the success if it's elders.

    We have exactly 1 customer that regularly buys bernheim. Just one.

    My initial reaction after reading this was just...meh. But, if there's a little octane in this release, I could get behind it. Seems unique enough compared to what's currently on the market and if the price is right, I'll end up giving it a shot.

    I'm in the Bernheim fan camp too although I never has cause to buy one at the store. I'll probably end up grabbing a couple of these.

    I asked Bernie Lubbers about this on twitter and he more or less confirmed it. Said that was what Parker was hinting at. Should be interesting!

    I'll buy it and try it for sure, it'll be a new whiskey experience at the very least, and at best I'll love it, at worst it'll make a good gift to a buddy that loves BWW. And as for price, I hope that any subsequent bottlings of PHC will have a donation to the Promise of Hope fund incorporated, even the old ones that are going on sale at the BHC sometime soon. It's not as if we've cured ALS, and I like the charitable aspect of giving back by buying a bottle of PHC. Everybody is driving up their prices, might as well see some of that increased profit go to charity.
