Note: 'Wheaters' as the term is commonly used here refers to those Bourbons that use wheat rather than rye as the "flavor grain".    Examples would be the Weller Brands, Maker's Mark, etc.

I think the whiskey to which the article refers is a Straight Wheat Whiskey (minimum 51% wheat in it's mashbill).    There aren't too many Straight Wheat Whiskeys made in the US.   The biggest seller is Bernheim Original Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey from Heaven Hill.

Thanks for putting this straight! You never stop learning.

Bought a bottle of Bernheim Wheat Whiskey, because I was curious. Thanks! Good stuff.

It's well-made whiskey; but, for my taste buddies, just a bit too narrow, and a bit sweet.   I can pour it neat and enjoy it quite well when I'm in a particular mood, and do so; but, it's an infrequent occurrence.    Hope you enjoy it!
