Review #1326 – Old Weller Antique Old Oaks Cigars & Liquors Selection

The Schtick: This is a single barrel selection of a popular Buffalo Trace product. Distilled using BTs wheated mashbill, Old Weller Antique is a young wheater bottled at a fair proof, and tatered into oblivion. I seem to really bounce between a strong dislike and a strong like of these single barrels, with some ground in between. Lets see how this one is.

Review #1326 | Bourbon Review #594

Distiller: Buffalo Trace

Bottler: Buffalo Trace

Selection: Old Oaks Cigars and Liquor

ABV: 53.5% ABV

Age: NAS


Nose: Big butterscotch, vanilla, cherry syrup and waffle cone. Faint tobacco.

Taste: Sweet, lots of fruit, cherry and melon. Big vanilla at first, turning to caramel. Medium mouth feel. Heat grows with time. Cinnamon becomes prominent.

Finish: Long, sweet and rich. A bit of heat, but a nice pipe tobacco component.

Overall: Better than many of the Old Weller Antiques Ive had in the past. If not for the hot cinnamon on the palate this would be a real stunner.

Thanks for reading!
