    Re: looking for a good wheated (but not super sweet) bourbon

    I just bought my first bottle of Weller 12 and I am in love. It is quickly moving up my list of favorite pours and I am not a huge fan of Weller Special Reserve.

    I recommend trying the Weller Antique 107.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I'll pick up one or two of these next time I'm in Kentucky in a couple of weeks (haven't seen these varieties at home.)

    I've read nothing but good things about the Pappy products so I might have to save up a little bit to get one of those.

    I would recommend Weller Antique 107 or Weller 12. You can't go wrong with Van Winkle but I'd recommend PVW 15.

    Yes, Pappy and the other Van Winkle bourbons. Simply an oversight on my part.

    Re: looking for a good wheated (but not super sweet) bourbon

    Hello shannichols,

    I'm a rather new boubon drinker, but I've learned a lot from the fellows on his forum.

    After I tried a wheated bourbon for the first time my taste buds were in love. My favorite - Old Weller Antique 107. I drink it neat from a 12oz snifter and a double shooters worth lasts me all evening.

    My home state of Oregon does not have the full spectrum of bourbons that you can find in Ky or Tn, so I can't really comment on all the wheated bourbons, but see my reply to a post on how my day went today: http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...ad.php?t=11031
    http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/image.php?type=sigpic&userid=3862&dateline=1216772  641 I love the smell of bourbon in the morning!

    and... how did it taste?
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.
