William Larue Weller Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 2017
William Larue Weller was introduced in 2000 as the W.L. Weller 19 year old, however it was removed again in 2003 due to the Sazerac partnership with Old Rip Van Winkle. The partnership required large stocks of wheated bourbon for the Weller & Van Winkle brands. It returned officially as William Larue Weller in 2005, and has been bottled annually as part of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection / BTAC line.
One of approximately 19,000 bottles from 155 handpicked barrels, the 2017 was bottled at 128.2 Proof.
"Part of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection, William Larue Weller Kentucky Bourbon is a rare and sought-after bourbon made from a mash bill of wheat, corn and barley. Aged for over a decade in charred oak barrels, this bourbon has a rich, complex flavor profile with big notes of caramel, vanilla, and a hint of spice. Sip it neat or on the rocks to fully appreciate its smooth and well-balanced taste. Bottled at cask strength, each release is unique and varies slightly in proof. This exclusive, limited-edition bourbon is a must-have for any whiskey connoisseur."
- William Larue Weller Kentucky Bourbon 2017
William Larue Weller was born into a distilling family in Kentucky in 1825 and launched his W.L. Weller brand in 1849. Originally a rectification business (creating 'whiskey' using neutral spirit, colouring and flavourings), this all changed with the Bottled in Bond Act of 1897 and the death of Weller two years later. The company was left in the hands of the fiercely passionate Julian 'Pappy' Van Winkle I who, having steered it safely through the wreckage of National Prohibition, established Old Weller alongside the newly acquired Old Fitzgerald labels and the flagship brands for the new Stitzel-Weller distillery in 1933. It was produced there for over 60 years, eventually being sold to the Sazerac Company in 1999, who distill it at Buffalo Trace using Pappy's recipe to this day.
