Buffalo Trace’s three Kosher Whiskeys are the first Kosher whiskeys from a major U.S. whiskey distillery. The Wheat Recipe will likely gather the most attention for its ties to the company’s uber-popular Weller brand. Those hoping it would be a new easy to find “Poor Man’s Pappy” will unfortunately be disappointed as its flavor profile shares little with the iconic brand. Instead, it has much more in common with the Weller brand as it's sweeter and lighter than Special Reserve, yet features a touch more cinnamon and oak like Antique 107 does. It would be wise to keep expectations in check, as the Wheat Recipe is an enjoyable sipper and nothing more.
