William Larue Weller (2016 Release)
If you like your bourbon turned up to eleven then look no further!
William Larue Weller has been heavily decorated over the years by Jim Murray's annual Whisky Bible and not without good cause.
The use of wheat in the mashbill gives William Larue Weller a blistering sweetness that just works when matched with almost 70% alcohol. Eye watering stuff.
Being made at Buffalo Trace from a wheated recipe has spawned rumours (which we can neither confirm nor deny) that it's made from the same recipe as Pappy Van Winkle, hence its wild, cult-ish popularity amongst bourbon geeks.
This is often advertised by Buffalo Trace distillery as a cask strength 12 year old although they don't state it on the label (who knows why would they do this?).
Originally released in 2016.
