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."
