bernheim wheat whiskey smell
After swirling, Bernheim is caramel and honey-forward with a little more heat, and now lemon, coconut meat, oak, tobacco, cinnamon, dried out chocolate bar, honey baked bread, and just a hint of nuttiness. It really does smell like Weller Antique 107. The oak also has a great mature fragrance to it, like Remus Volstead 14 and Woodford Very Fine Rare Bourbon, that makes it smell much older than 7 years old and ties it all together into a nicely fragrant whiskey
