Uncut and unfiltered, this hand-bottled bourbon is barrel proof. Weller substitutes wheat for the traditional rye grain, a production method pioneered by W.L. Weller.
Fragrant scents of caramel corn, new leather, plums, light toffee and pipe tobacco. The palate tastes of marshmallow, salted almonds, nougat, figs and dates. This whiskey finishes smooth, composed and flavorfully sweet.
Born in 1825, William Larue Weller was one of the early whiskey pioneers in Kentucky. After serving in the Louisville Brigade during the 1840's, William Larue Weller remained in Louisville and continued his family heritage in the whiskey business. Weller was famous for his kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey using wheat instead of rye in the mash bill. As one of the most distinguished of his time, William Larue Weller spent many years educating consumers about the different styles of Bourbon, and the special flavors that wheat imparted to his whiskey in particular.
William Larue Weller also believed in the importance of aging his whiskey and to this day Weller Bourbon continues to be aged longer than most. The combination of exceptional aging and the use of wheat in the mash bill produce a whiskey with a very mature, rich and exotic aroma. Its flavor has been described as full, evolving and sophisticated, with notes of vanilla, teaberry, and cinnamon.
Like its namesake, this uncut and unfiltered Wheated Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is strong, proud, and enduring. A tribute to the legacy of William Larue Weller.
