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%

Release: 2016

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!

Rank: 9
