    Bernheim Wheat 7 y/o

    In the midst of a Twitter exchange with Bernie Lubbers to confirm the identity of the new PHC, he also dropped this welcome little nugget of good news

    So it appears Bernheim will be moving from an NAS to a 7 y/o age stated whiskey. God bless Heaven Hill for bucking the unfortunate NAS trend.

    If it is not selling that well I suppose they could have a "glut" of it...

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

    We have exactly 1 customer that regularly buys bernheim. Just one.
    So maybe a PHC Bernheim would help inspire better sales of the soon to be 7yo regular Bernheim!

    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Very glad to see this, I recall this being a very delicate drink so fully aging should help bolster the flavor. I would love to do a side-by-side with the bottle of the initial release I have bunkered and a new age-stated bottle, if only this was available here.

    I'm a fan of the current release so I'm thrilled to try the whiskey with more age on it.

    Thanks, HH!

    Excellent news, and Chuck (in particular) summed it up for me. True enough that since Prohibition ended, this is apparently the first straight wheat to be released, but wheat whiskey existed before Volstead and one has to assume that straight versions were made - hence the creation of the category on the books as Chuck said, in the 1930's. Seagram made a "white wheat whiskey" before WW I, for example.

    To reprise what another poster said, HH is awesome.

    The NAS stuff is good enough straight. The 7yr may indeed have enough extra barrel influence that will contribute more flavor.

    Cool news. I like the PHC progression. It may be a little slow. But then again, it should be slow, good things come to those who wait. I'm happy waiting for the barrels to come of age.

    Thou Shalt Drink No Whiskey Before It's Time....to drink whiskey I presume.
