Soft Wheat Whiskey that puts the wood center stage.

Roughstock Distillery in Bozeman, Montana, had their first copper still delivered in 2008. The first spirit dripped off the cooling coils a few months later. This made Roughstock the first distillery in Montana in more than one hundred years. They keep everything local — they say, “Grain to Glass” and everything is done in-house. Over the years they have grown to five signature Whiskies that cover the gambit — from Pure Malt to Black Label Bourbon.

“Spring wheat” refers to softer, low-gluten wheats that are often used to make cake flour. They are smoother and ferment well, delivering a less grain-like punch to the palate and showcasing the aging and wood more. Roughstock Montana Spring Wheat Whiskey is made from this gentle grain before being aged in ex-Bourbon casks and then finished in well-toasted virgin French oak.

Smartass corner: 
“Roughstock” is an old rodeo term referring to bare-back horse and bull riding. That means no saddle, just strong legs, and courage. "

Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but a final filter through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates Tennessee Whiskey from its Kentucky cousin. The finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.

First sip was good with the sweet, but every sip after that was too sweet. It’s like drinking icing from a birthday cake.

So far my favorite I have tasted so far. A smooth taste with a nice finish, no burn in the back of the throat. Nice flavor.

Alex
Alex,
Eh, I had higher hopes for this one... For a ‘roughstock’ whisky...it’s a bit of a limp ride. I know this distillery has other, more potent whiskies, and possibly they are better. That being established, it’s more mild, and you whisky folks that are more seasoned, this will feel more like a riding a sad pony at the fair...

It is a classic, delicate Whiskey with a semi-sweet death!

Extremely mild, tasted weak and watered down. But it was sweet, with very little aftertaste.

Nice but very sweet
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Just a little too sweet for my liking. Not a bad whiskey, but not one I could drink very much of or very often.
 
Scott
Scott,
Very smooth. My favorite from the package. More sweet than bitter but not over powering. Very well balanced

Sweet, with toasted cereal. Spicy finish smells like apples light mouth feel. Enjoyable.
 
Josh
Josh,
Wow, I love a good wheated whisky - I grab any level of Weller I can get my hands on. This is clearly a case of too much of a good thing. Corn is completely overpowered, is there any barely to be found?
