WL Weller 12 Year Wheated Bourbon

, ,

WL Weller 12 Year Wheated Bourbon was rated No.2 by dramdata.com in the top ten whisky investments for 2019 and considered the ‘baby Pappy Van Winkle’.

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 exceptionally smooth, easy-going and balanced offering with a beautiful deep bronze color.

Produced by Buffalo Trace Distillery, replacing rye with wheat makes for an extra smooth Bourbon. This is also aged considerably longer than most wheated styles. In fact, the boys at breakingbourbon.com reckon Weller 12 is as close as 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 it’s not matured in the sweetest spots in the warehouses). Factor in the price difference and this represents extraordinary value for money.

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.
