Cleveland Whiskey’s Wheat Penny 1958 Bourbon is the distillery's first wheated bourbon and it’s finished with black cherry and toasted oak.
Why 1958? 1958 was the last year of the wheat penny. It was the year the World’s Fair featured an electronic computer that demonstrated a knowledge of history. It was the year NASA was created and microchip was invented. The world didn’t know it yet but limits on what we could achieve were being eliminated.
The folks at Cleveland Whiskey can relate to that
Wheat Penny 1958 Bourbon Tasting Notes:
Aroma: Wood fired oven right off the bat on the nose, followed by notes of tobacco, cedar, with a touch of campfire toasted marshmallow and apple crisp.
Palate: Sweet and savory up front, like salted caramel. Notes of clove and cinnamon
Finish: subtle mesquite smoke in the background that lingers well into the finish.
