Weller Full Proof Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USA
Reviewed July 11, 2022 (edited February 14, 2023)
Pours a medium amber orange color. Smells nice, lots of vanilla, less in the way of baking spice, but it’s there, cinnamon and the like, some caramel, with hints of oak and a nice fruity note. Taste follows the nose, vanilla, light spice, a bit of caramel, hints of oak and dark fruit. Mouthfeel is full bodied, rich, with significant alcohol heat. Overall, certainly worth the shelf price, but the hype and secondary market are way out of proportion here… still, it’s a nice, enjoyable dram. Beer Nerd Musings: Lots of beers are aged in Weller barrels, and the hype and status as a Pappy alternative transfers to beer as well. The BCBS Anniversary was aged for 2 years in Weller 12 barrels, and it’s pretty great, a solid upgrade from standard BCBS.
