A whiskey that’s overflowing with bakery flavors, has a fantastic mouthfeel, but also has a youthful note that should subside with a little more age.

Bendt Distilling Company was founded in Lewisville, Texas in 2012. Sourcing local grains, distilling their own products, and aging in hot Texas summers has helped them produce unique tasting whiskeys.

According to the company, the grain bill includes local soft winter red Denton County wheat, Denton County yellow dent corn, and Maris Otter malted barley. The whiskey is aged at least four years in 53 gallon barrels with a 3.5 char level. Consistent with one of the dominant traits of wheat whiskey, it’s filled with bakery scents up front which permeate throughout the sip. It has a beautifully viscous mouthfeel, which helps make up for a slight youthful note that starts in the nose as light fresh grain and appears again in the palate. Overall, it’s great to see a bottled in bond wheat whiskey from an up-and-coming distillery, and with just a bit more age I think this could go head to head with just about any other wheat whiskey out there.
