12 Days of Vice: Reservoir Wheat Whiskey
It’s no surprise that the colder months require warmer libations. After all, how else are you going to feel all warm and fuzzy inside? For the uninitiated to the wonderful world of American whiskeys, there is no finer wheat whiskey than the Reservoir Wheat Whiskey ($43; 375ml). Founded in 2008 and a recent addition to the art of craft distilling, Reservoir is made from local Virginia grains and is only distributed to a few locations on the east coast in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC. Carrying a heavy wheat mashbill that’s surprisingly savory on the palate, this will surely keep you warm as you sit by the fire this holiday season. Just be sure you get more than one bottle: the holiday cheer can spread quite fast.
