A rich and sweet Wheated Bourbon at an exceptional value with specs to die for.

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."

They 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.

How would you like to get your hands on a Bourbon with the same mash bill and aging profile as Pappy Van Winkle Lot B? W.L. Weller 12-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Wheated Bourbon is that dram.

Now, there are other differences, of course — we’re not saying that this twelve-year-old Weller at 45% ABV is as good as Pappy.

What we are saying is that this fine Bourbon is REALLY good, an exceptional value, AND you can get your hands on a bottle… and you should. Think of it as a "Poor Man’s Pappy."

*This bottle is a collector’s item; we will not be able to entertain any refunds or exchanges.

**Individual orders are limited to one item per person, as we wish to give everyone the opportunity to participate.

***Any kind of transit damage is insured and will be reimbursed.

One of my long time go to favorite Bourbon's. It is ashamed that an individual cant find it anymore and when you do they want an arm and a leg for it! It was always the affordable option that hit way outside of its weight class.
I still have a little on the shelf but savor it. Hopefully it will become more available soon...
