Todd
Todd,
Certainly one of my favorite bourbons. The trick to NOT paying too much for it is to find it in certain states that it is somewhat more available (albeit usually in less metro areas) and sells for close to normal retail cost.

Ben,
One of my favorite bottles when purchased for the right price. Anything over $40 is pure robbery.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
As stated, excellent for the normal price point. Super smooth nose and flavor with just enough complexity.

Nice everyday Bourbon, but you shouldn't pay more than $35.

This is good stuff, but not for this price. Just paid $50 for a 1.75L.

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.

Easy drinking, sweet, a bit oaky.
 
Mitch
Mitch,
Perfect balance between sweet and spicy, and the finish is smooth, too.
 
Derek
Derek,
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.
 
Paul
Paul,
One of the definite go to!
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Very smooth vanilla and butterscotch flavor with a little burn not much. Great on ice.

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
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.
 
Alex
Alex,
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.
 
Jamie
Jamie,
As far as I’m concerned there’s not a better bourbon for a cheaper price.
 
Dave
Dave,
Great for the retail price (under $30) but not worth secondary pricing

Smooth & tasty
 
Charles

Sweet spice upfront. Cinnamon aftertaste. Very strong aroma.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Nice and neat
 
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
 
guest
guest,
No better value. Avoided it because I assumed its taste was commiserate with its price. Boy was I wrong. This Bourbon is simply amazing.
 
guest
