W. L. Weller Full Proof Kentucky Straight Wheated Bourbon Whiskey has distilled at the Buffalo Trace Distillery. William Larue Weller developed his original bourbon recipe with wheat rather than rye. Bottled at the same 114 proof, this non-chill filtered wheated bourbon forgoes chill filtration to preserve all the naturally occurring residual oils and flavors when it entered into the barrel that occur during the distillation and aging process (potentially making it appear cloudy at cold temperatures).
This bourbon balances a luxurious mouthfeel, with robust notes of vanilla and oak. It offers a nose of vanilla, dark cherries, and caramel. On the palate, there is a balance of caramel and toasted oak. The finish is long, with notes of creme brulee and chocolate. A whiskey satisfies the demand of the non-chill filtered whiskey enthusiasts, honoring the man who made wheated bourbon legendary. Enjoy!
