W.L. Weller Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Tasting Notes Review

W.L. Weller Special Reserve 7 year old

90 proof, “wheated” Kentucky Straight Bourbon

 

Wine Enthusiast rating: 90

 

Tasting Notes

Replacing the rye grain in the recipe with wheat provides for an exceptionally smooth taste. And at 7 years of age and "Kentucky proof"– 90 proof, W. L. Weller is a truly outstanding buy.

W.L. Weller Special Reserve 12 year old

90 proof, “wheated” Kentucky Straight Bourbon

 

Tasting Notes

Colour:-The deep bronze colour beautifully reflects the light --

 

Nose:-perfect purity; the initial nosing pass finds fully nature aromas of lanolin, almond oil, and creamed corn -- in the middle stage sniffings, following several minutes of air contact, a toasty oaky/vanilla perfume takes the aromatic helm -- the fourth and last whiff highlights the oily grainy quality that’s firm and pungent -- a high-spirited, lusciously toasty, and animated bouquet that has top-notch Bourbon written all over it;

 

Taste:- the dry, complex, and toasty palate entry is reminiscent of the Centennial 10 Year Old’s grand entry -- the mid-palate flavour profile is heavily wheated (like Wheat Thins crackers), oily, layer, moderately sweet, and sap-like;

 

Finish:- the finish is long, sweet, oaky, and intensely grainy; follows in the footprints of the legendary

 

Comment:- Centennial and delivers the goods, all for an unbelievable price. Paul Pacult, The Spirit Journal

Tasting Notes

Colour:- A medium amber bourbon,

 

Nose:- bearing a sweetish note with some unusual floral notes and a string dash of vanilla.

100 proof, “wheated” Kentucky Straight Bourbon

 

Wine Enthusiast rating: 97

 

Tasting Notes

Nose:- An intensely complex, fruity nose switches among vanilla, dried fruits and just a dash of mixed spices.

 

Taste:- The body is huge and the palate follows along the line of the nose with an abundance of rich vanilla, a basketful of lush fruits and a wonderful butterscotch backdrop.

 

Finish:- The finish is long and incredibly sophisticated and understated.
