Nose: Light and airy with a scent of oak, and pears.
Taste: So the guys at Bear Creek do make one of the BEST wheat whiskies that I have ever had. When you take your first sip the first thing that comes to mind are the wheat fields that you can find in the Midwest that are blowing in the wind. The barley is strong but continues to develop with a mild maple and currant finish. It is not an over powering whiskey but has the enticing flavor that keeps you wanting to come back for more.
At our party last month this was one of the whiskies that we highlighted for the evening. Our fabulous bartender, Claire, came up with a Whiskey Contratto Negroni that complimented this whiskey nicely. The caterers, Off the Menu Denver, made a bear creek wheat BBQ sauce with this whiskey, and the truffle that was paired with this whiskey was a corn flake and chili prepared for us by the Chocolate Lab in Denver. Perfect complement to this great tasting whiskey.
