W.L. Weller Special Reserve "Green Label" is the original wheated Bourbon with a smooth profile.

The Stitzel-Weller Distillery is stuff of Bourbon legend. It was founded on Derby Day in 1935 by Julian "Pappy" Van Winkle himself and some of the most legendary Bourbons and brands were made there. The distillery itself was closed in 1992 and is now a museum-like adjunct of Bulleit Bourbon Experience owned by Diageo. But there is a lot of left-over Weller Bourbon in the storage lofts, along with "orphan" casks from other distilleries. But the Weller brand still produces some of the most sought-after Bourbons of the day — all flowing from the stills in the famous Buffalo Trace Distillery.

Weller is sometimes called "The Original Wheated Bourbon." That’s because it is distilled from a mash bill of corn, wheat, and barley… no rye at all. And that combination always yields a smoother Spirits with fewer spices notes and more toffee/caramel notes. W. L. Weller Special Reserve is their Gold Medal-winning entry into the category. We say it makes an exceptional sipping Bourbon at 45% ABV.

Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Good finish, steep price.
 
Jason
Jason,
This is a pretty good pour at its retail price point which should be $25-$30. If you are paying more than $35 you are getting ripped off.

Perfect balance between sweet and spicy, and the finish is smooth, too.

As far as wheated bourbons go, this is top notch for a bottom shelf price. Somewhat complex with a decent linger. Better than most competitors and the price makes it even better.

Good for the price, not overly complex but would make a good daily drinker

If it wasn’t so rare, it’d make a great daily drinker, but thanks to some dumb hipsters, it’s almost impossible to find any of the Welllers and Van Winkle’s, even the low end Special Reserve! Nothing extremely special about it, but better than any other wheat brands I’ve tried(at least those brands bottles in the $25 range) like Maker’s, Larceny, Rebel Yell, Redemption Wheated, etc etc. Spicy nose with lots of vanilla and caramel, palates the same, mouthfeel is good but not great, and the finish is medium length and more spicy than sweet if you ask me. If it was as available as, say, Buffalo Trace, I’d drink it around twice a week(as an every day drinker), but it’s not, so I have a bottle or two in my collection for the sake of the collection, and that’s about it. A must try for wheater fans, but don’t go spending crazy money for it. Overall, 78/100

Sean,
Excellent, especially at <$30 price tag. Little known fact, this comes from same warehouses as what becomes Pappy Van Winkle bottlings. A solid deal at this price, and fits in a nice area with Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace and Knob Creek. Some of the best values out there in my opinion.

Super smooth wheated bourbon.
 
George
George,
Excellent smooth and complex compliment to Weller 12 at a better price. Still give the edge to the 12 but this is an exceptional bourbon for sipping.

As far as I’m concerned there’s not a better bourbon for a cheaper price.

Great for the retail price (under $30) but not worth secondary pricing

Mike
Mike,
This is a solid versatile bourbon. Smooth enough to drink neat but not so high end you would feel bad about mixing cocktail with it.
 
Jon
Jon,
Sweet wheated bourbs. I had this neat so far, and it is smooth. Waited for some fire but remained smooth and clean. I love it
 
Ivan
Ivan,
Smooth wheat start with a tad of a bite at the end. Not overwhelming though. Good stuff

No better value. Avoided it because I assumed its taste was commiserate with its price. Boy was I wrong. This Bourbon is simply amazing.
