Liquor barn store pick. Reminds me a lot of wild turkey rare breed. If I could get this for retail that would be fine. Much prefer the 12 year or CYPB lol. Very smooth upfront with Kentucky hug on back end. Cherry and vanilla on nose, brings a caramel plum aftertaste. Not strong in oak.
Neat. Opened about a month I think. I was disappointed with the neck pour of this one. Honestly it might just be a bad store pick but I suppose that is a good lesson. The sticker doesn’t mean crap if you don’t know the rep of who is doing the picking. This is supposedly a Wheatley pick though, so I can’t imagine the Buffalo Trace Master Distiller picking a bad barrel right.
The nose is just so faint and delicate. Honestly it reminds me of Maker’s cask strength.... I’m going to do a side by side...
Man these are more similar than I want to admit. The Weller is definitely better. It’s more refined, some nice creams and berries with the typical caramel. Nice hint of oak. The Maker’s is darker in tone, similar caramel but with a bit of musty rickhouse rather than those fruits and berries. So Weller FP wins the nose (thank god).
Okay, the mouth feel on the Weller is perfect. Rich, oily, super coating. Taste on this one is just okay though. Those berries and cream really show up immediately on the tongue. Transitions into caramel and pie crust. Bit of cherry on the finish. Long finish too. Nothing about these flavors are lights out. Back to the Makers, the Weller is better but not by much. Makers feels thin by comparison. Caramel hits first but transitions to that musty oak note. Nice chocolate on the legs. The finish on the Makers may actually win.
Ugh, I must not have a good single barrel on the Full Proof. If they all taste similar to this one, Full Proof is not worth the hunt (let alone secondary). I’m going to compare this to Makers RC6 next time. I bet you it blows it out of the water.
