William Larue Weller Bourbon.
Uncut and unfiltered, this hand-bottled bourbon is barrel proof. Weller substitutes wheat for the traditional rye grain, a production method pioneered by W.L. Weller. Fragrant scents of caramel corn, new leather, plums, light toffee with pipe tobacco. The palate tastes of marshmallow, salted almonds, nougat, figs and dates. When a bourbon is this touted and this “limited,” you can’t help but expect anything less than greatness. With William Larue Weller, all you get is whatever a multitude of greatness tastes like. This is a hot, juicy, flavourful detonation of a whisky. William Larue Weller Bourbon, William Larue Weller bourbon 2015.
