W.L. Weller Special Reserve Bourbon is a special reserve of wheated bourbon aged in New American white oak barrels. It is part of a highly coveted series of bourbons named after William Larue Weller, to commemorate his family's legacy. It is aged 7-8 years and is bottled at the award-winning Buffalo Trace Distillery. This splendid blend is crafted from Mash Bill #2, like other great blends such as Pappy Van Winkle, Blanton's, William Larue, and Elmer T. Lee. It is a sour mash bill of corn, malted barley, and extra rye. This bourbon is smooth and mellow with distinctive grainy notes, mingled with slight hints of sweet caramel. On the palate, you'll notice notes of honey, layered with butterscotch, and a soft woodiness. The finish is smooth with a sweet honeysuckle flair.
W.L. Weller Special Reserve Bourbon is an award-winning seven year old wheated bourbon that has been aged for a minimum of 7 years, far longer than most wheated bourbons. It is part of a series of bourbons named to commemorate The Wellers. The Wellers established their roots in the 1740s as distillers. His family settled in Kentucky in the late 18th century, where his grandfather, Daniel Weller, purchased a distillery in Nelson County. After serving in the Mexican-American war, William Larue Weller returned home to his native Kentucky where he joined the family business and began working at his grandfather's distillery, as a wholesale whisky salesman. William Larue Weller and his knowledge evolved the whiskey into what the great brand is today. Weller had a great palate and in 1849, he introduced the first bourbon that used wheat as a secondary grain instead of rye. Wheated bourbons like Pappy Van Winkle, Larceny Bourbon, and W.L. Weller's have a softer and more gentle flavor and a slightly sweeter taste. Weller's bourbon was incredibly popular and ultimately forced him to place a green thumbprint on his invoices, and barrels as a certification of authenticity. Pappy began working at W.L. Weller & Sons in 1893 as a traveling whiskey salesman and eventually became the President of Stitzel-Weller Distillery. After W.L. Weller’s passing in 1899, Pappy and his co-worker Alex Farnsley purchased the company in 1908. George Weller, William’s oldest son was President of the company until it became Stitzel-Weller Distillery. This distillery opened on Derby Day of 1935. Buffalo Trace bought the W.L. Weller brand in 1999 and has been making the bourbon with nearly the same recipe ever since.
