A 75cl bottle of Buffalo Trace's stunning bourbon William Larue Weller, named after the man famed for being the first to create "wheated bourbon", in which the spicy rye grain is substituted for wheat in the mashbill. The result is a smooth, supple little sippin' whiskey.
Nose: Oily and rich. Marzipan, cereals, vanilla spice.
Palate: Oaked. Spice, perfumy, toasty.
Finish: Quite sweet, oaky, cereal rich.

So I've been scouting around for Pappy substitutes and this is pretty much it. Not as complex as some of the older Pappys and Family Reserves but it has that classic Pappy Cognac/sauternes sweet grape character, which is not in any other Bourbons I've tasted. It's basically the same mash bill. I'm guessing this is pretty much the same as Van Winkle 12 year old. This will become a regular in my cabinet, but snap them up because they are almost as rare now!

Drinks like a fine brandy, forget the ice.

Wonderful bourbon, beautifully sweet and extremely well balanced, there's a lot to be said for wheated bourbon.

My understanding is that the people from Pappy Van Winkle recently confirmed that the 12yr old Weller is the same juice as the Van Winkle Lot B 12 year old. Check pricing on both and you'll find a significant difference. I've just purchased a bottle of the Weller and am interested to see if it tastes the same. The Van Winkle 12 yr is a phenomenal bourbon so if Weller is indeed the same nectar, I'm their newest fan. CheersPete

I can't claim to be an expert but I am swept away by this whiskey, smooth tastey and a long way away from the aggressive bourbons I've had before. Almost akin to Calvados. Wonderful discovery. I'm surprise that there aren't more reviews form more accomplished sippers than me.
