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
Mashbill: BT Wheated Mashbill
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.
