William Larue Weller developed his original bourbon recipe with wheat, rather than rye. He was the first to such creating the first wheated bourbons still so highly sought after today. Bottled at the same 114 proof the spirit was when it entered into the barrel, this non-chill filtered wheated bourbon forgoes chill filtration to preserve all the naturally occurring residual oils and flavors that occur during the distillation and aging process. This process potentially making it appear cloudy at cold temperatures. This bourbon balances a rich mouth feel, with robust notes of vanilla and oak. A whiskey that satisfies the demand of the non-chill filtered whiskey enthusiasts, honoring the man who made wheated bourbon legendary.
This American whiskey has a nose of vanilla, dark cherries and caramel. On the palate, there is a balance of caramel and toasted oak. The finish of this bourbon is said to be long, with notes of crème brûlée and chocolate.
