Review #344 – William Larue Weller 2016
Whiskey Network Review #344 | /r/Bourbon Review #189 – William Larue Weller 2016 , 135.4pf | 62.7% ABV
Distiller: Buffalo Trace
Mash: Wheated mashbill
ABV: 135.4pf | 62.7%
Source: r/scotchswap samples
Nose: Sweet sticky toffee, ethanol, vanilla, cream, fruit like plum and strawberry, mild clove, caramel. Dusty leather.
Taste: Thick, oily, sweet butter and caramel, apples and ice cream, mild pepper, vanilla, cherries and cocoa. Huge flavors all around
Finish: Long, massively complex. Some heat but very much in check.
Overall: This vintage was hella sweet compared to others I’ve had but it knocked it out of the park. WLW and THH continue to be my jam out of the BTAC. I’ll give this a Rank 9. It’s a complex monster of flavor and I think it deserves every point. Now i’ll just go snag one from my loc…..wait, shit.
Thanks for reading!
