William Larue Weller is part of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection. There are five different bourbons and whiskies in the collection, and they are each as good as it gets in their specific class. The other brands in the collection along with William Larue Weller are George T Stagg, Sazerac Rye 18 Year Old, Eagle Rare 17 Year Old and Thomas H Handy Sazerac. Each are released once a year.

This is William Larue Weller 2012. It is a wheated bourbon, uncut and unfiltered. It was distilled in the spring of 2000 and was then aged for 12 years and 4 months. The grains used in the mashbill were corn, wheat and malted barley, the later two grains coming from North Dakota. The wheat in the mashbill gives William Larue Weller its unique characteristics.

Only 49 barrels were used and 56.6 percent of the bourbon whisky in those barrels was lost to evaporation (the angels taking their share). It was therefore a limited release making it very sought-after.

It was bottled barrel proof at 61.7% ABV.

So what is William Larue Weller 2012 like. Firstly it is a glorious deep amber colour. It is smooth with complex flavourings that are both sweet and oak-like. It is a sipping bourbon whisky, and one of the best.
