overall

Barrel proof wheat whiskey is hard to come by and malted wheat whiskey even more so, which makes all the more reason for wheat whiskey lovers to rejoice over Lost Lantern Single Cask #16.

Lost Lantern has been on a roll in 2022, bringing to market rich flavorful releases that have been impressing us. Working with Breuckelen Distilling out of Brooklyn, New York, Lost Lantern once again reveals their ability to handpick unique casks. The oldest single cask that Lost Lantern has ever released, this 100% malted wheat whiskey has a mashbill that you don’t see that often, especially at this age and proof.

The nose is shockingly gentle and light considering the 130 proof that this single barrel delivers. It does little to entice you to explore further and is the weakest part of the sip, which is a shame since the rest of the sip is flavorful and lives up to what you’d expect from it. Dried cherries are the star throughout along with bread in various forms. Add in that there is a range of spice notes and the sip does a good job of grabbing your attention. It’s not as bold and memorable as say a William Larue Weller, but then again it’s also not a bourbon and that isn’t an apples to apples comparison either. A 100% malted wheat mashbill is rare to see, and the flavors delivered in this Lost Lantern Breuckelen Distilling single cask will delight those who prefer a wheated whiskey or a high wheat bourbon mashbill.

The cask chosen for this release produced a total of 165 bottles.
