This is the wheated bourbon of the 5 whiskeys known as the Antique Collection, named for the distiller who was the first to introduce wheat instead of rye into the bourbon mashbill. This release was distilled in the spring of 2002, and aged on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 6th floors of Warehouses D, K and L. At 140.2 proof, this is credited with being the strongest Larue Weller release ever.

Tasting Notes

"Much like its cousin, George Stagg, the flavors are rather tightly coiled until a couple of drops of water are added. Once that happens, Bing cherries, ripe plums and dark caramel hang out with wheated cereal notes. Ends with sweet and peppery spice, finishing hotter than previous releases - be warned."
