New Riff Distilling Maltster Wheated Bourbon
Introducing Maltsters, a project that explores different malted grains used in a Bourbon recipe. Our distilling team delved into their background as craft brewers and pulled out of their hat a couple of magical recipes. This unique mashbill offers a bold interpretation of traditional Bourbon styles. Our Maltster a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey made with Malted Wheat offers a darker and deeper riff of a classic wheated Bourbon.
From the opening aroma of our Malted Wheat Bourbon, there is shade of dark, husky grains to the whole production; yet it also drinks in a classical Bourbon fashion with plenty of oak. A splash of water releases a whiff of dark fruit. In the mouth, it enters large-scaled and full-bodied, tending to dryness. There’s plenty of oak but, behind that, lies that notion of dark (black currant?) fruit. A wood spice element tinges the finish, which grows on the taster precipitously.
