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.
The Wheatley Moscow Mule:
- 1.5 oz of Wheatley Vodka
- Fever Tree Ginger Beer
- Squeeze of Lime
Three simple ingredients and you are all set.
The Bottom Line
If you are a vodka fan and you are looking to sip something smooth, yet different, with a nice warming finish from a distillery who knows their spirits, reach for a Wheatley Vodka. Enjoy it on the rocks, sip it neat or mix together a quick Moscow Mule for a refreshing drink with some nice bite.
