W. L. WELLER 12 Year Old is made as a nod to one of bourbon’s original aristocrats, WL Weller 12 year old Kentucky Straight Bourbon is still crafted using Weller’s original 1849 wheated bourbon recipe. Aged for 12 years, using wheat secondary to rye in its process, this bourbon offers a nose of vanilla, caramel and molasses, giving way to a mouth of corn, fruit and cocoa. Having earned the accolades of Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and scoring 93.5 points in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, this spirit is one you simply cannot pass over.
As part of the wheated bourbon family, this twelve year old W.L. Weller is aged far longer than most wheated bourbons. This offering is a smooth, easy-going and balanced bourbon with a beautiful deep bronze color.
William Larue Weller was one of the early whiskey pioneers in Kentucky. W.L. Weller was credited as the first to use a “wheated” bourbon recipe, a recipe that used wheat rather than rye in the mashbill and spent his lifetime educating consumers about the difference in his bourbon. The brand continues to deliver as a world-class wheated bourbon at an honest price to this day.

I have to say that Weller 12 is at or near the top of the most polarizing whiskies available today, from those that preach the word that it is Baby Pappy (same BT mash bill) to those that dread the current price gauging and say that it really isn’t worth the attention that it gets. Where am I on the spectrum? We’ll find out shortly…
