Review #612. Old Weller Antique – Kentucky Bourbon Festival

Review #612 | /r/Bourbon Review #358 – Old Weller Antique, Kentucky Bourbon Festival Selection

The Schtick: This is a well proofed wheater released from Buffalo Trace. It is a NAS product using the wheated mashbill. Old Weller Antique used to be a common, easily available and affordable product, but has recently been struck by the halo effect generated by Buffalo Trace’s other, higher tier products.

Distiller: Buffalo Trace

Bottler: Buffalo Trace

ABV: 53.5% ABV

Age: NAS

Source: Sample

Nose: Honey, cinnamon, confectioners sugar. Faintly spicy pepper, some melon.

Taste: Medium, some heat. Sweet oak, lots of pepper. Red hots are real here. Very dry.

Finish: Short, hot. Dry and spicy. Papery and loaded with allspice and cinnamon / red hot candies.

Overall: This was hot and not terribly full of character that I find enjoyable.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 4
