About William Larue Weller 2021 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

The 2021 release is uncut, unfiltered, and hand-bottled, as were the previous vintages. Distilled in 2009 from Kentucky corn and North Dakota wheat and malted barley, it's a sour-mash wheated bourbon that was bottled at a cask strength of 125.3 proof after spending more than 12 years and 6 months in #4 char American oak casks. Creamy with cherry, cocoa, herbal, and oak notes, it's a well-aged, powerful, yet perfectly balanced whiskey.

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.
