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.

Conor
Conor,
Powdered honey, apples, vanilla. Great to try but I wouldn't ever pay more than $40. That being said, its impossible to find at this price since the secondary market demands a $100 minimum. All in all, a classic bourbon but not priced like one.

Not bad, not special. I picked up a standard 5th at local. Worth the buy to say I did but wouldn’t pick up again

Tom
Tom,
A fine bourbon at it’s 1990’s price of $17.95 per 1.75 lt. bottle. A darn good wheated bourbon at below $35 a 750ml. A waste Of money at over $50.

Timothy
Timothy,
This is 8/10 at the normal cost of about$50 for the liter bottle. $113 is laughable pricing for something that is at best a good mixer.

Kevin,
Well, my palate is still developing so three glencairns in since I purchased I am starting to pick up and appreciate the nuances of this bottle. The nose picks up the sweet smell of butterscotch and Carmel, which are the first notes on the tongue followed by a lasting long charred oak on the back tongue. Nice smooth finish every time.

Splash of chilled filtered water and a cigar type spirit right here
 
Richard
Richard,
This bourbon is decent. I see it selling above retail a lot since it carries the Weller name. It's a good bourbon, but its not worth paying above retail for this. There are many other better bourbons when it is sold above retail. It is a good buy at retail.

Ryan,
Smooth and delicious. One of the best I’ve found. Hard to find though so love that it’s available here!

Philip
Philip,
Picked up a bottle at the local liquor store for $27. Factoring in that price it gets an 8 or 9. If I paid more than 50, it would be a 7. If I paid $100 for it, I would be disappointed. Nose is light, hard to pinpoint, maybe tropical fruit. It reminds me of apple cider that’s been aged in tequila barrels. Mouthfeel is nice, it’s thick and coats your tongue. The flavors are subtle at first, but develop into a butterscotch candy and cinnamon spice. Finish is a little harsher than expected.

Exceptionally smooth. Big flavors of caramel and vanilla with a general sweetness that makes a every sip worthwhile
