Review #610. Old Weller Antique

Review #610 | /r/Bourbon Review #357 – Old Weller Antique

The Schtick: This is a well-proofed wheater from Buffalo Trace in the Weller lineup. I’ve reviewed it before, but it’s been a few years and my palate has grown since then.

New bottle, old bottle, who gives a rip


Distiller: Buffalo Trace

Bottler: Buffalo Trace

ABV: 53.5% ABV

Age: NAS

Mashbill: BT Wheated Mashbill

Source: Bottle


Nose: Sweet cream, caramel, big red gum, cracked pepper, maple sweetness.

Taste: Medium mouth feel, some heat. Sweet and cinnamon heavy. Vanilla butter cream, pepper, allspice. There’s more heat than I’d like.

Finish: Medium length, more heat. Cinnamon, pepper, spices and caramel sweetness.

Overall: Overall, this is just fine. It’s not great, it’s not terrible. It’s incredibly overrated on the social media outlets of the world, though.

Thanks for reading!
