A sweet Bourbon with a flavor profile well beyond its age.

Wheel Horse Whiskey is produced by Latitude Beverage Company at the O.Z. Tyler Distillery in Owensboro, Kentucky. The distillery is actually owned and operated by a contract producer named Terressentia. There have been a few other acquisitions and name changes along the way, but suffice it to say that the folks know what they are doing and their Whiskies have won a bunch of awards.

Wheel Horse Straight Bourbon Batch #3 is aged the traditional way: in 53 gallon barrels for a minimum of 2 years. For its youth, this dram is shockingly developed and traditional tasting. Crafted from 70% corn, 21% rye, and 9% malted barley, it’s bottled at 101 proof and there’s a creamy mouthfeel with sweet flavors of caramel, vanilla, oak, and rye spice.

Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
