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."

Marissa
Marissa,
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,
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.

Probably the best of the Wellers

As close to pappy as you’ll get

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.
