Weller C.Y.P.B. Bourbon


Weller C.Y.P.B. Bourbon


A few years ago we asked whiskey drinkers to “Craft Your Perfect Bourbon” (C.Y.P.B.) online and choosing their ideal bourbon recipe, proof, warehouse location and age. Thousands chose wheated bourbon, just like William Larue Weller did years ago. This limited edition whiskey is the result of the overwhelming consensus—a wheated recipe bourbon, aged on the highest warehouse floors for eight years and bottled at 95 proof.

Weller C.Y.P.B. Bourbon. W.L. Weller C.Y.P.B (which stands for “Craft Your Perfect Bourbon”) is a 95-proof, 8 year old wheated bourbon. Buffalo Trace Distillery announced that it was releasing a bourbon that was, essentially, selected by the people. On a website that Buffalo Trace started, users can select a mash bill, barrel char level, warehouse location, age, and proof. According to the results, most users preferred a wheated bourbon, aged in the top floor of the warehouse for at least 8 years, and bottled between 90-99 proof.

Buffalo Trace also announced that Weller C.Y.P.B. would be an annual release. Because Pappy mania seems to have reached its crest, in its wake anything with the term “Weller,” due to its shared mash bill and greater availability/affordability, is becoming like an animal on the “endangered species” list for hunters. Retail stores display signs stating “1 per customer,” if the product is placed on the shelf at all. In essence, what was once a product that was never meant to be a premium, limited release, has been turned into one. Many would say that adding yet another limited Weller product only adds unneeded fuel to the fire. Nevertheless, out of curiosity if nothing else, I wondered where Weller C.Y.P.B. fit within the Weller lineup. So, here goes nothin.

Weller C.Y.P.B. (8 years, 95 proof)


 Cherry wood; dark chocolate; musk cologne; cedar closet; brown sugar; orange peel; drywall; vanilla extract; cherry pit. (3.5/5)


Brown sugar and cherry; hotter than expected; Big League Chew gum; buttered burnt toast; baked cinnamon apple. (3/5)


Brown sugar continues to carry through, with some salted grilled steak and pineapple; gets a bit drying/tannic towards the very end, like licking the inside of the barrel, which is most likely the result of aging on the warehouse’s top floor. (3/5)


 This sits somewhere between underwhelming and something intriguing. It is hard to identify which variable – proof, age, or something else – is holding it back. So, in the end, it is simply satisfying, if nothing else. (3/5)


Suggested retail is $40, though most stores will charge much more. Got this locally for $15 for a 1.5 ounce pour. Considering the hype, and what could be charged, this is difficult to score. Based on what was paid to sample it, it’s simply satisfying. (3/5)
