Craft distilleries are doing some interesting stuff, and New Riff is no exception. Their Single Barrel Bourbon is really interesting and one of the earthiest bourbons I’ve ever had. Now, New Riff has expanded their offerings into include the “Maltster” line, experimenting with malted rye and wheat in two separate releases.
Here, I have New Riff Maltster Malted Wheat, a unique wheated bourbon made from only corn and wheat (no barley), and currently the only wheated bourbon in their lineup. Not only that, the 35% wheat is made up of an even more unique blend of wheats, but I don’t understand the differences. Last but not least, at 5 years old it’s one of New Riff’s oldest homemade releases to date. Yay for their bourbon getting older!
Let’s find out if all this unique wheatery creates an exciting experience in this New Riff Maltster Malted Wheat bourbon review.
