For BlackFork Wheated Bourbon, wheat is the major secondary grain (replacing most of the rye in the mash bill), giving this whiskey a softer, sweeter profile.

One of the most famous, coveted, and expensive examples of wheated bourbon is Pappy Van Winkle, which has long been an aspirational whiskey for many people.

Wheated bourbons need to be aged longer and they tend to age better when longer aging periods are involved (up to around the 20 years).
