William Larue Weller 2018 Description

Part of the Antique Collection from Buffalo Trace distillery in Kentucky, this straight bourbon whiskey has been named for pioneering distiller WL Weller. Weller substituted wheat, a soft grain, for the traditional rye grain in the mash bill, to create a mild, gentle and smoother taste.

This 2018 release was distilled in the winter of 2006 and matured for at least twelve years and six months in new white oak barrels with a level 4 char, charred for 55 seconds. Just 149 hand-picked barrels were married together to produce this limited edition release, bottled uncut and unfiltered at a barrel-proof strength of 62.85% abv.

Please note: image is for illustration purposes only and may show a different year's release with a different barrel-proof strength.
