Weller 12

One of this week’s featured bottles is a bottle of Weller 12, a 90 proofer with JUST about the most age you want on a wheated bourbon of this caliber. But remarkably it takes you right up to the line but never over, demonstrating a dry oak that blends back perfectly with the sweeter wheat flavor components. On the nose, sweet tree nut aromas, clover honey, cinnamon, and tuned up oak. On the palate, a creamy fruit followed by a perfectly pleasant oak bite. They is the chewiest of the Wellers, and certainly a master class in oak barrel ageing.
