I don't see it listed with the abbreviations but does OWA stand for Old Weller Antique 107? Figured I'd just ask before doing any shopping this week.

If so, I see it often enough in the 'daily pick up' thread to assume it's a good bourbon (and I typically enjoy wheated bourbons), especially for the price. Do I assume correctly?

Yes sir, you are correct on both parts.

That's right, OWA is Old Weller Antique, and your assumptions are correct.

Keep an eye out for specially selected bottles (normally have a sticker on the side saying selected by Harlan Wheatley), and bottles that still have a '7' on the neck, the age statement recently went away, but bottles with the age statement are still lurking. Current, standard OWA is the best bourbon buy out there right now, IMHO, but if you are near a K&L or BevMo they probably have specially selected bottles of OWA for the same price as the regular OWA.
