W.L. Weller Full Proof Bourbon

For many folks, Pappy Van Winkle’s bourbons are the ultimate American spirits, bar none. But they’re also extremely rare and expensive. Those in the know, however, are already keyed into the fact that Buffalo Trace’s W.L. Weller offshoot uses the same wheated mash bill (as opposed to rye) as Pappy, making for an exceptional substitute at a fraction of the price. And they’ve just unveiled a new Full Proof Bourbon that should have all whiskey enthusiasts very excited.

Bottled at the same 114-proof the spirit was when it entered the barrel, this magnificent Bourbon was non-chill filtered to preserve the residual oils and flavors that might otherwise be lost — imparting it with bold, rich flavors of vanilla and oak and giving it a cloudy appearance when chilled. Of course, the heavy up-front notes are balanced by a remarkably smooth finish — marked by flavors of crème brûlée and chocolate. The most incredible thing about this release, however, is that bottles are selling for just $50 a piece.
