All about W.L. Weller
There are three trim levels for the Weller line of Bourbons from Buffalo Trace. There is Old Weller Antique, W. L. Weller 12 year, and W. L. Weller Special Reserve. The bottles are identical in shape with similar labeling and naming, so they are often confused.
W. L. Weller Special Reserve is billed as “The original wheated Bourbon Whiskey.” Wheat is a cost effective way to smooth out the spirit so all’s good here. It is bottled at 45% ABV, and has notes of caramel and orange blossom honey with a dash of oak.
