William Larue Weller Barrel Proof Bourbon From The Buffalo Trace Antique Collection
These vintages find their way to Australia in only minuscule quantities, often the entire country is allocated only one box. This is despite enormous demand and regard for each of the items from this collection.
Uncut and unfiltered, this hand-bottled bourbon is barrel proof. Weller substitutes wheat for the traditional rye grain, a production method pioneered by W.L. Weller.
Nose: Cherries, caramel, vanilla, toasted oak
Palate: Soft caramel chew, spearmint, cinnamon
Finish: Intense, long finish of coffee, floral, pepper, and dry oak
