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 Antique 107 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 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.

Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
