Description

Weller 12 yr Bourbon doesn’t need much introduction. Buffalo Trace’s wheated bourbon is a constant target for bourbon lovers new and experienced, so it’s more a matter of how much you’re willing to pay or search for a bottle. Then of course there’s the willpower to actually open and drink it. In my case, I told my brother to open the bottle and enjoy it with my Dad while I was in away Japan. Thankfully, they left me half a bottle when I returned from my year abroad.
In Weller world, Weller 12 Year price-wise sits between Weller Antique and Full Proof (around $50), and Weller Special Reserve ($25ish). It’s the oldest age wise, in the same ballpark as the 12 year old-ish William Larue Weller.
Wheated bourbon this old is really unique. Outside of Buffalo Trace, I can only think of Rebel’s 10+ year old single barrel, which I’m pretty sure is sourced from Heaven Hill. I’ve reviewed the 10 year, but I think they’ve also released a 12 year since then.
I expect this limited selection to change in time as craft distilleries like Dry Fly, Wilderness Trail, and New Riff further age their wheated bourbons. Nonetheless, older rye’d bourbon will probably continue to dominate store shelves and your personal stashes because distilleries have made so much more of it over the decades. Whiskey club
