About William Larue Weller 2017 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

The William Larue Weller Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey does just that ― instead of rye grain, it uses wheat in its recipe according to the bourbon style that Weller pioneered. It's uncut, unfiltered, and bottled by hand at barrel proof. The 2017 release of this expression is bottled at 128.2 proof and was distilled in 2005, then aged in new #4 char white oak. The whiskey from the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection was aged for more than 12 years before the 155 barrels were released.

About W.L. Weller

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. (When Daniel Weller died, his estate was inventoried and was said to contain three whiskey barrels, two stills, one mash kettle, and numerous dry kegs.)

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.

Rich caramel, vanilla, spice, and cherry aromas lead the charge on the inviting nose. There's a distinct sweetness on the palate with toffee, marshmallow, dark fruit, and orange zest, along with a touch of leather, black pepper, and cinnamon. The fruity sweetness lingers on the finish.
