Review #423. Old Weller Antique (Gonomo)

Review #423 | /r/Bourbon Review #240 – Old Weller Antique (Gonomo)


The Schtick: I actually have no idea. I think it’s supposed to be good. Let’s see how it goes!

Distiller: Buffalo Trace

Bottler: Buffalo Trace

ABV: 53.5% ABV | 107pf

Age: NAS

Source: /r/scotchswap sample


Nose: Caramel, honey, confectioners sugar, vanilla, cherries and some cinnamon. Certainly a bit sweeter for a OWA nose but definitely that nice, soft, wheater profile on the schnoz.

Taste: Medium thickness, but there is some heat. Sweet oak, toffee, vanilla, nice body with a good deal of cinnamon red hots and cherry notes.

Finish: Medium length, some heat but lots of sweet, oaky, caramel goodness. A bit of vanilla and a hint of cherry but richer caramel and drier than the palate.

Overall: This was really interesting and is probably my favorite OWA that I’ve had before. The wheater profile in general is notoriously not my favorite, but this shone through that and I found it quite enjoyable.

Thanks for reading!
