About Old Weller Antique 107 Original Wheated Straight Bourbon

About Old Weller Antique 107 Original Wheated Straight Bourbon
Situated on the Kentucky River in Frankfort, Kentucky, Buffalo Trace Distillery takes its name from an ancient pathway that migrating buffalo used when traveling westward. The trail was well-known among Native Americans and was eventually used by pioneering settlers who crossed the Ohio River and followed the buffalo trace to the Western frontier.

Buffalo Trace Distillery is the oldest continually operating distillery in the United States and includes the rich legacies of master distillers such as E.H. Taylor, Jr, George T. Stagg, Albert B. Blanton, Orville Schupp, and Elmer T. Lee. Today, the distillery is still family-owned, operating on the same 130 acres of land adjacent to the Kentucky River as it has for over 200 years.

After serving in the Louisville Brigade during the Mexican-American war, William Larue Weller returned home to his native Kentucky. His family had helped settle Kentucky in the late 18th century, and his grandfather, Daniel Weller, purchased a distillery in Nelson County in 1800. 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 the legendary Pappy Van Winkle and Larceny Bourbon, which eventually imitated W.L. Weller's mash bill) 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.

Crafted at the Buffalo Trace Distillery as part of the W. L Weller Antique Collection, Old Weller Antique Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a wheated bourbon that, after maturing for seven years, is bottled at cask strength of 107 proof. It showcases a medium-amber hue, with an aroma of creamy vanilla and roasted nuts. Full-bodied and balanced, the bourbon offers notes of honeyed fruits, vanilla, and caramel that lead to a long and slightly spicy finish, and was called a "very well-crafted whiskey" by Wine Enthusiast.
