Fall 2021 Release: New Riff Red Turkey Wheat - Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey - SOLD OUT
Continuing our exploration of heirloom grains, and turning our attention to one of the great traditions of Kentucky whiskey; the vaunted category of wheated Bourbon. We think you will be thrilled to meet Red Turkey Wheat, our newest addition to the New Riff collection.
Eschewing our usual high-rye focus, we mashed locally grown Red Turkey Wheat—a classic 19th century varietal, preserved today by bakers, distillers, and farmers who care about flavor—to craft a high-wheat Bourbon recipe that brings a new depth of grainy, zesty flavor to your glass. Aged over five years in our rickhouse, New Riff Red Turkey Wheated Bourbon unites old-time whole wheat flavor with sour mash craftsmanship, a wheated Bourbon for—and from—the ages.
As always, our Red Turkey Wheat is Bottled in Bond Without Chill Filtration and aged at least 5 years.
Due to the overwhelming response, club members will only be able to purchase one bottle per person
Each bottle $49.99 + tax
Tasting notes & Mash Bill:
Nose: gristy-grainy-bready with a balance of oak and confection, dark fruits and a top note of citrus emerge in time
Palate: chewy and remarkably zesty, even citrusy, with moments of dark stewed fruit, moderately sweet and well-balanced, black cherry skin into the finish
Finish: complicated and exceptionally long, zesty and full of gristy grain character against bright citrus and dark fruit skin
25% Red Turkey wheat
5% malted barley
