WL Weller 12-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Wheated Bourbon
Wheated Bourbon” is bourbon with wheat as the predominant grain in the mash bill after corn. Traditionally, rye takes that second billing. This 12-year-old whiskey is referred to by some as the “poor man’s Pappy”. With the exception of the 23 Year Pappy Van Winkle which still has some Stitzel-Weller juice in it, all Pappy and Weller bourbons use the Buffalo Trace wheat mash bill. The main difference will be in the barrel management.
WL Weller 12-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Wheated Bourbon Whiskey Tasting Notes
Nose: The nose and flavor profile shows notes such as vanilla, orange peel, and chocolate all loaded up with warming baking spices.
Palate: The proof helps to tighten up the whiskey and is less cloying as a result. Is pecan maple syrup a thing? Because if it is not, it should be. This whiskey seems to show this in spades. The whiskey warms in your throat and belly, so the only thing missing really is a fresh plate of flapjacks.
Finish: Long, oaky, and intensely smooth finish.
