Product description

Part of the prestigious Buffalo Trace Antique Collection, William Larue Weller is hand bottled at barrel proof. Made with wheat in place of rye, William Larue Weller is the smoothest barrel proof bourbon on the planet.

 

The Antique Collection’s only wheated recipe , William Larue Weller, clocks in at 12 years and an uncut and unfiltered 125.3 proof, distilled in the winter of 2009 and aged in Warehouses C, D, K, L and Q. The distillery tells us to expect a “nose of crème brulee, followed by cherry and toasted graham crackers on the palate and a long rich finish of coca, herbs and oak.

 

William Larue Weller Whiskey is a top name in bourbon. It honours the distiller who first used wheat instead of rye in bourbon. He was a 19th-century Kentucky bourbon maker. His name lives on in this popular whiskey.

Distillation and Production

The whiskey follows Kentucky’s traditional distilling methods. It has a twist: wheat instead of rye. This makes the whiskey smoother and softer. It is known for its rich, full body.

The distilling process is careful. It focuses on grain selection, fermentation, and distillation temperatures. The whiskey ages in new, charred oak barrels. This gives it a deep amber colour and flavours of vanilla, caramel, and oak.
