Proof66 Notes

Taos Lightning, according to Mountain Men and Life in the Rocky Mountain West, appears to be a reference to a form of wheat whiskey popular in the mid-1800s (and, apparently, un-aged). In light of this, a Taos Lightning bourbon is aged and made primarily from a corn-base grain bill (both requirements to be known as "bourbon"). We guess that this is a "wheated" bourbon, where the second main ingredient is wheat likely done to soften and smooth the flavor.
