W.L. WELLER 12 YEAR

KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY

As part of the wheated bourbon family, this twelve year old W.L. Weller is aged far longer than most wheated bourbons. This offering is a smooth, easy-going and balanced bourbon with a beautiful deep bronze color.

COLLECTION

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of lanolin, almond, creamed corn and toasty vanilla. The mid-palate flavor is heavily wheated, layered and moderately sweet. Long, oaky, and intensely smooth finish.

REVIEWS

Rating: 93.5

–Jim Murray's Whisky Bible

“The deep bronze color beautifully reflects the light…high-spirited, lusciously toasty, and animated bouquet that has top-notch Bourbon written all over it; dry, complex, and toasty palate.”

-Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal
