One of my new favorites. Never find it in Denver, but Morgans seems to have a connect!
Weller Special Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon /45% ABV / Kentucky, United States
- Kentucky, United States
The Original Wheated Bourbon features an exceptionally smooth taste, substituting wheat for rye grain. Bottled at 90 proof, this bourbon stands out with its burnt orange color. Its softer flavor notes make this bourbon great for sipping or cocktails.View all products by W.L. WellerCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Great whiskey just not for a $100. Never pay more then $35-$40.

Best Bourbon for the price—hands down!!
5 stars because the bourbon is great, but at its legitimate $35 price for this bottle. What a rip-off.

Many years back I bought a bottle out of an open case sitting on the floor. Price was attractive enough to spring for a taste test. Over ice this was one of the best tasting bourbons I had ever drank. Dropped by again in a week or so and none was available. Apparently other customers discovered the same thing I did. These days I enjoy a sip or two of Makers Mark.
Firstly, this bourbon is excellent for the (retail) price, it's almost as good as the now impossible-to-find 12 yr. It's 5 stars. However...SHAME ON YOU DRIZLY FOR YOUR COMPLICTY IN VENDOR PRIOCE-GOUGING! I can find this in stores in different parts of the country fairly regularly for $45 for the 1.75ml but there's a local store in Denver upcharging the 750ml to $200!!! What?? I will forever boycott Pecos Wine & Spirits in Denver, CO for much larger & better store that actually has the decency to only charge fair retail (Molly's, Total Wine..heck I've even found it at CostCo!). I will also no longer be paying Drizly to deliver when I'm feeling lazy, hope your drivers that depend on this service understand.

Weller is 5 stars but I didn’t get it. Store did not have it.

A consistent favorite of mine, if you like wheated whiskies, with a sweeter more cereal flavor, this is it.

It's great stuff.
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.
