Weller 12yr Bourbon
Bourbon /45% ABV / Kentucky, United States
- Kentucky, United States
- Years Aged
William Larue Weller was one of the early whiskey pioneers in Kentucky. W.L. Weller was credited as the first to use a “wheated” bourbon recipe, a recipe that used wheat rather than rye in the mashbill and spent his lifetime educating consumers about the difference in his bourbon. The brand continues to deliver as a world-class wheated bourbon at an honest price to this day. As part of the wheated bourbon family, this twelve year old W.L. Weller is aged far longer than most wheated bourbons. This offering is a smooth, easy-going and balanced offering with a beautiful deep bronze color. Tasting Notes: Aromas of lanolin, almond, creamed corn and toasty vanilla. The mid-palate flavor is heavily wheated, layered and moderately sweet. Long, oaky, and intensely smooth finish.

Super smooth, great stuff!
Hands down one of the best bottles I've ever had but the price that some of these people are selling it for is outrageous extremely high secondary pricing. This bottle should be sold for no more than $100. In the Northeast we get Virtually none, so the price gets driven up. If you go down south you can pick up bottles for around 50 to 60 bucks.
Wow! I have two bottles of W L Wellers 12 years old they have been in my cabinet for 10 years. I know it was there but forgot about them.

Great bottle! Usually sells for around $100 or less..... paid the mark up fee just to add it to my collection.
Is the best stuff on earth! It's still affordable and highly sought after yet it's worth the chase and constant denials of availability. I've been fortunate this year to purchase 5 bottles 3 litres at $48 & 2 fifths through aftermarket @$200 ea.Ive discovered BLANTONS which is every bit as good as this & Buffalo Trace also a fine bourbon. I wish you luck in finding a bottle of it. Also this year I scored a bottle of Orphan Barrel "RHETORIC" 23 year I'm saving with my attorney for a special "PAYDAY"
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
