    Vintage 17

    So I know one of the Gurus' is going to tell me this horse has been beaten, but I have done searches and cant find the info. Whats in the Vinatage 17 bottles?

    I was lucky enough to some recently and all I can say is.....mmmmmmmhhhmmmmm!! Its good.

    Who's whiskey is it?

    You're right, the horse has been beaten to death and then some more. If you have a newer bottle then it's Bernheim wheated bourbon.

    Thanks,

    Bernheim was one of my three candidates.

    As for "newer" bottlings I dont know. Wheat shaffs on the label, Neck tag indicating MA rating of 92 and 3.5 stars out of 4....green wax sealed top. bacl label indicating its the best and rarest there ever was

    There are some images of the rye vs wheater iterations of the V17 taken of the labels side by side,but it will take some digging.I myself just recently did a search to show someone else and of course now I am unable to find it.

    Doesn't the wheater simply have a scripted font on the back?

    You're wrong. An "enthusiast" told you that.

    The font on the wheater is just like what you're reading here.
