PRODUCT DETAILS

Bourbon /45% ABV / Kentucky, United States

William Larue Weller was one of the early whiskey pioneers in Kentucky. W.L. Weller was credited as the first to use a “wheated” bourbon recipe, a recipe that used wheat rather than rye in the mashbill and spent his lifetime educating consumers about the difference in his bourbon. The brand continues to deliver as a world-class wheated bourbon at an honest price to this day.

As part of the wheated bourbon family, this twelve year old W.L. Weller is aged far longer than most wheated bourbons. This offering is a smooth, easy-going and balanced offering with a beautiful deep bronze color.

Tasting Notes:
Aromas of lanolin, almond, creamed corn and toasty vanilla. The mid-palate flavor is heavily wheated, layered and moderately sweet. Long, oaky, and intensely smooth finish.

Description

Weller 12 year Bourbon.

Weller 12 Year Bourbon might the closest you can get to tasting Pappy Van Winkle. It comes from the same recipe as Van Winkle Lot B, which is also aged 12 years, but doesn’t get the sweetest spots in the warehouses. For many people that’s enough to convince them to buy it. It’s also one of the few wheated bourbon on the market which put it into a category with few competitors. Of those competitors, 90% of them are from the same brand line. On top of that, it’s aged 12 years, far longer than most low cost bourbons.

Weller 12 year Bourbon tastes very close to how it smells. All of the nuanced aromas of the nose also develop similarly on your tongue. It has a sweetness to it, yet never goes overboard as you think it might. There’s also a subtle amount of dryness arrives midway. The palate isn’t quite equal to the layered texture of the nose but it comes close.
