Jim Beam Signature Craft Soft Red Wheat 11 Year Old Bourbon Whiskey
The “Soft Red Wheat” variant of the Harvest Bourbon Collection, aged 11 years and bottled at 90 proof. The “soft” refers to the protein level of the wheat; lower protein wheat is softer and easier to mill as well as producing higher alcohol yields. Soft wheat is also used to produce blended scotch, grain whiskey and vodka, so chances are good you’ve tried wheat influenced spirits before!
