Review #628 | /r/Bourbon Review #366 – Old Weller Antique, The Last Word Bar Selection “Golden Ticket”
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
Nose: Waffle cone, caramel, honey, red hots and toffee
Taste: Medium mouthfeel, only some mild heat. Peppery red hots are present paired nicely with honey caramel notes. There’s some faint peanut brittle (wtf) and a bit of astringency.
Finish: Long, no heat, creme brulee dominates.
Overall: Nice, but a bit cinnamon forward. Finish makes up for brief shortcomings in the palate
Thanks for reading!
