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."

Jeff
Jeff,
I developed a taste for wheated bourbon on Weller 12 year. This is my favorite bourbon of the 50+ bottles I currently own.
 
Travis
Travis,
Smooth, honey, great.
 
Salvador
Salvador,
Robust, intense, leaves you wanting more, like an auburn haired Irish lass you meet in a candlelit pub. You meet. You spend a quiet evening together, and even though she's gone, she is impossible to forget.
 
Brendan
Brendan,
A very nice, smooth and oaky bourbon. Well crafted with a great finish! If I could find this at cost I would order a dozen cases. As it is I will keep it for times when I’m alone and relaxing.
 
Mike
Mike,
Unfortunately the secret is out on this diamond in the rough. Still a bargain compared to other Van Winkle creations.

All time favorite. Sweet and smooth. Drinkable for any pallet - novice or expert. Weller 12 was my first foray into the world of quality bourbon.

Definitely my favorite bourbon!

J,
This would get 10 stars if you could still find it at suggested retail prices. I remember going through a couple bottles when they were less than $50 each thinking it was liquid gold. Now the price matches the taste.

Carmel apple cake. Nothing not to love
 
Shaun
Shaun,
Best bourbon I’ve ever had. The butterscotch taste makes me feel like I took a trip to Willy Wonka - it’s that intense. And it lingers forever. No water or ice unless you’re an idiot.

Prefer to my Old Rip 10 year. Smoother with less bite at the end. My new favorite sipper.
 
guest
guest,
VERY disappointed with this dram - for the price, COMPLETELY not worth it. Drams like Old forester 1920 prohibition or Weller antique 107 are significantly cheaper, much easier to get, and oh by the way, much better! This is a $50 whiskey that is just all hype. If you want Pappy, go get the real deal, as this one falls way short.

Sweet vanilla with an orange taste
 
Darryl
Darryl,
This is the classic wheated bourbon and was my go-to when it was $30 a bottle... about 10 years ago.
Albert
Albert,
Its still 30 to 50 in stores picked one up yesterday for 55.
Vincent
Vincent,
Where did you find this for $50
Joshua
Joshua,
Smooth and delicious. Perhaps the best I’ve ever sipped on!
 
William
William,
Love it!!!!!!
 
Scott
Scott,
I've only had one glass at a bar, but it definitely lived up to its hype. Possible one of the best bourbons I've ever had. Smooth, but not too smooth, still complex in its tastes from start to finish.
 
Austin
Austin,
Honestly think it's kind of bland, doesn't impress. Wanted to try it just because of the hype behind it but it definitely doesn't live up to it. I'd be okay paying $30-$40 for it but if it's more I'd just let it go.
 
Rodney
Rodney,
Not probably the best Weller....IS the best Weller! Wish I could find more....at retail price.
 
Brendan
Brendan,
I love the Weller line, but this one is a bit overoaked in my opinion. If you love wood forward bourbons this one would be a good one to try.
 
guest
guest,
Probably the best of the Wellers
 
Stephen
Stephen,
As close to pappy as you’ll get
 
Scott
Scott,
Rich and smooth with caramel corn and lush citrus to the nose and on the front end of the palette. Smooth and silky with a long finish but no alcohol bite at the end. Candied nuts, orange, cherries and underlying oak as a great background.
 
James
James,
As good as it gets for a predictable, smooth and delightful daily drinker. All day long flavor profile with this whetted bourbon. Always enjoyed near, never mixed. Never had a bad sip, but it sadly only comes out on very special occasions based on its current rarity.
 
Amy
Amy,
This is a very good Bourbon, paid MSRP and would rate it at that price point one of the best
 
George
George,
Best I’ve ever had, and I’ve had all the Pappy’s and everything in between. Smooth, sweet, deep. Perfect.
 
Dustin
Dustin,
Great bourbon to enjoy neat..... enjoyable flavors and nice finish. Not worth $250+ most places want a bottle. If you can find it for under $150 you’ll enjoy it even more.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Weller 12 is a good bourbon. The creamy mouthfeel is the best part of it. The nose is like candied vanilla, but it’s quite muted. The finish is short-medium and the palate is tasty, but reserved. It’s good, but it’s not special.
