William Larue Weller (2017 Release)

William Larue Weller 2017 Bottling Note

Named after the American whiskey pioneer, the William Larue Weller bourbons released as part of the much-adored Buffalo Trace Antique Collection feature wheat taking the place of rye in their mashbill. The 2017 edition packs a hearty 64.1% ABV and notes of “Toffee, marshmallow, and leather” according to the distillers. Yum.

See the rest of the 2017 releases here.

As per 2016, we will be splitting our 2017 Buffalo Trace Antique Collection allocation between a dram lottery, bottle lottery and auction, raising funds for our chosen charity, Malaria No More UK.

Why are we doing all this? Been limbering up and fancied your chances in a fastest-finger-first bun fight? What's the point of all this anyway?! Have a read of our blog post on the matter.

Please note: On the back of the lottery bottles we'll be adding the message “I, [your lucky winning name], hereby swear not to sell this bottle – but to drink it with my chums. May my taste-buds and olfactory bulb shrivel and die if I should break my word.”

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Fragrant scents of caramel corn, new leather, plums, light toffee and pipe tobacco. The palate tastes of marshmallow, salted almonds, nougat, figs and dates. This whiskey finishes smooth, composed and flavorfully sweet.

William Larue Weller (2017 Release) Reviews

Very good but not as good as the 2016

Compared to the 2016, the 2017 WLW was a bit closed in terms of the flavor profile but all in all an awesome bourbon. My favorite is the 2016 it was one of the best bourbons I’ve ever tasted.
