Kentucky Whiskey | Bourbon Whiskey
W. L. Weller Aged 12 Years The Original Wheated Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has made at the Buffalo Trace Distillery. As part of the wheated bourbon family, this twelve-year-old W.L. Weller has aged far older than most wheated bourbons.
William Larue Weller was one of the early whiskey pioneers in Kentucky. W.L. Weller was credited as the first to use a "wheated" bourbon recipe. This recipe used wheat rather than rye in the mash bill and spent his lifetime educating consumers about the difference in his bourbon.
This offering is a smooth, easy-going, and balanced whiskey with a beautiful deep bronze color. It offers aromas of lanolin, almond, creamed corn, and toasty vanilla. The mid-palate flavor is heavily wheated, layered, and moderately sweet with long, oaky, and intensely smooth finish. It has bottled at 45% alcohol by volume. Enjoy!
