    What is the age of Willett Single Barrel

    I just bought a bottle of Willet single barrel. The lable doesn't state the age of the whiskey. Does anyone know the age of this whiskey? This is my first time trying it I hope it was worth the price.

    It all depends on where you got it. Willett is a label that KBD uses for private bottlings. There's normally a smaller label above the large front label that describes the bottling. If that's missing, I'm not sure how you can tell.

    There is a small lable over the cap. It lists the bottle number and the barrel number but no age or dates. The large lable just says it's aged in white oak until maturity.

    I haven't cracked it yet, I'm taking it to a tasting this weekend.

    Is the proof listed on the bottle? How about any kind of wax seal?

    (facepalm) When I think of Willett, I think special bottlings and not the pot still bottle.
