Can A Famous Bourbon Company Make A Good Vodka?

In short, well, yes.

Known for its bourbon, the Buffalo Trace Distillery has embarked on a new spirited adventure, vodka.

Wheatley Vodka is a new addition to the portfolio of Buffalo Trace, a company straight out of Kentucky.

This distillation process is headed up by the master distiller, Harlen Wheatley, in which the vodka proudly takes its name.

The wheat-based vodka is a smooth spirit full of complexities. This isn’t a vodka that has cake flavours or fruit-flavoured-fillers, it’s a vodka that has a lot of rich earthy tones and toasted grain flavours to make it stand out.

This vodka finishes off with a little slickness that gives you a nice reminder about what you just take a sip of. It’s not a drink that goes unnoticed, in a good way.

The flavour profile is not floral or harsh, it has some grain and richness to it and ends with a subtle kick.

It’s more of a soft vodka with undertones of vanilla and cinnamon that plays nice with other stronger flavours like ginger beer. However, it is a vodka that is smooth as some ultra-premium vodkas.

You may be asking yourself, how could I enjoy this in an easy, straightforward beverage that I can make at home. Well, we have a perfect suggestion.
