Review #626. Old Weller Antique Florida ABC Pick

Review #626 | /r/Bourbon Review #365 – Old Weller Antique, Florida ABC Store 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, caramel, red hot cinnamon candies and peppery allspice. Rich toffee and some creme brulee.

Taste: Medium thickness, some herbal spice, mild heat. Pepper, lots of cinnamon candies. The heat grows with time, as does the presence of some nice caramel.

Finish: Long with some heat – lots of pepper and spice. It’s nice, if a bit hot, but the cinnamon really diminishes with time.

Overall: This is best described as a bowl full of Red Hots and Werthers caramels.

Thanks for reading!
