The second in the Weller line, the Weller Antique bottled, aged for 7 years and bottled at 107, is for the bourbon drinker looking for an affordable wheated bourbon with a bit more kick to it. The higher proof holds up nicely to both cocktails or rocks while still maintaining it's distinct wheated properties.

Tasting Notes

"Like the Special Reserve you keep the honey, sweetness and vanilla, but you add a little alcohol burn and cinnamon. Palate continues with the burn, cut with dark fruits, apples and caramel. Finish is viscous and long with apple turnover."
