W.L. Weller Special Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey (1L)
Upon his return to Kentucky following the war, W.L. Weller joined the family business and began working at his grandfather's distillery. Weller had a sharp palate and a keen sense for business and in 1849, he introduced the first bourbon ever that used wheat as its secondary grain instead of rye. Wheated bourbons (including Pappy Van Winkle and Larceny Bourbon, which eventually imitated W.L. Weller's mashbill) have a softer and more gentle flavor profile as compared to bourbons that use rye as their secondary grain, and have a slightly sweeter taste. Weller's bourbon was incredibly popular in antebellum America and ultimately forced him to place a green thumbprint on his invoices and barrels as a certificate of authenticity.
Made in homage to one of bourbon's original aristocrats, W.L. Weller Special Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey continues to be made in the heart of Kentucky using a wheated mashbill. The bourbon has an amber hue, along with an aroma of caramel, cinnamon, cherry, dark fruits and wood. Notes of spices, caramel, citrus, toffee and lemon dominate the palate, and lead to a woody finish with hints of caramel and smoke.
