Overall: Much like the review I posted back in July 2021 for the 94 Proof of this same mash, I'm completely on board this Wheat-train. The added proof adds to the already delicious flavors of vanilla and brown sugar. The warmth may be a little overpowering upon the first sip, but don't worry, it quickly becomes a great experience from the tip of your tongue to the back of your throat. To me, this is a complete package. Nose, Taste, Finish and Proof. Well done, Magnolia and thank you for the opportunity to try this and give my thoughts.
