A powerful depth of flavor jumps from the wheated Bourbon classic.

The name “Weller” has been around the horn a few times. It all started with the Stitzel-Weller Distilling Company — founded in 1935 and closed in 1972 during the famous “Whiskey Recession.” The had a bunch of great brands when they closed, and the formulas and brands were sold off. Today, the W. L. Weller brand is owned by Sazerac out of New Orleans and the Bourbons are distilled at their famous Buffalo Trace Distillery along with a wide array of Sazerac products.

W.L. Weller Old Weller Antique is a Kentucky Straight Wheated Bourbon — sometimes called “Antique 107” — that is indeed bottled at 107 proof (53.5% ABV). That’s nearly cask strength, and all the flavors are powerful at that level. Although there is no age statement, the consensus of our experts and the Bourbon-drinking public is that it clocks in somewhere near seven years old. As a Straight Bourbon, it can’t have any artificial colors or flavorings and you just can’t get a rich color and smooth finish like that in less time. Bottom line, it is very smooth with a very light spice at a great value point and makes for an amazing daily dram. And the experts agree — awarding not one but TWO Gold Medals in 2019… one of them a double.

Ratings & Reviews
Chad
Chad,
This is being sold as the Old Label Weller 107 but it came as the new label. The new label is not worth this cost. And it remains being marketed as old label Weller 107 despite their vendor not honoring it, and will ship the new label. This should not be marketed as Old Weller label.

Seth,
The nose on this whiskey is amazing. Tastes pretty damn good too. Very good mouth feel. A little hot with a little spice to it. Great on a Friday night.

Rye, tannins, with a little leather and some sweetness. A smooth finish with a little lingering spice.

Richard,
Very good nose. Probably the best whetted bourbon I've had. It is worth the MSRP, it is not worth the crazy mark-ups I've been seeing. Don't spend more than $60.
