    Ya know, the more I think of this one, the higher it climbs on my "Can't wait for it's release" meter.

    Got to admit, it appeals to me and I'm not moved by much. What's equally interesting is if they have some 13s it stands to reason they also have some 10s, 11s, and 12s. All aged in new charred barrels, we live in exciting times.

    This post just made my day. I hadn't thought of that, tunnel visioned on the 13!

    Re: PHC 2014 - 13 yr Wheat Whisky

    It will be a real curiosity for sure. The Mastersons 100% straight wheat whiskey was aged 12 years (in presumably new charred oak since it is labeled straight) and it remains a very light and inoffensive but not terribly complex whiskey to me. Obviously the Bernheim is a different animal with lots of corn in the mashbill and aged in a warmer climate so it does sound like it will be more like what I had hoped the Mastersons might be.

    And if as noted they do have a plethora of older barrels lying about it will be interesting to see how they use those. Will they help in the blending of the future age stated 7yo or will they show up again somewhere as a separate bottling? Although there is no guarantee I suppose that they have a lot of older barrels between 7 and 12yo available. I suppose they could have identified a group of barrels to be aged longer as a possible PHC option and the rest of the barrels have been getting dumped at closer to 7yo in the regular Bernheim Wheat Whiskey.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Or stock is accumulating because it's not selling that well. Barrel proof Bernheim anyone? Somebody tweet Minnick.

    Sort of seems like they're running out of ideas, since they just did a 10-year-old wheater in 2010. They're overdue for a rye, or even a wheat whiskey. What about a 15-year-old corn whiskey, aged in used barrels? Seems like they have other possibilities, to be going back to this so soon.

    That said, I expect I'll love it.

    This one is going to be a wheat whiskey. Basically a 13yo Bernheim Wheat Whiskey.

    They should do a powdered whiskey for 2015.

    I misunderstood. Well, that's good then.
