Bluegrass Distillers Wheated Bottled-in-Bond is the follow up to the distillery’s first bottled in bond release in July of 2020, and the company’s first wheated bottled in bond product. This Small Batch Wheated Bourbon release is a blend of 4 barrels aged 4.5 years, totalling 920 bottles for the release. The resulting whiskey displays the wheat grain within its mashbill with flavors of baked bread and sugars. These however battle with youthful notes and a sharp spice in the palate that slightly throws things off. It’s an interesting combination that begs for just a bit more time in the barrel.

The bourbon being reviewed is from batch 1, bottle #693.
