I have been fooling around with wheated bourbon blends and found a concoction, that I think it pretty complex and easy to drink. Here's my recipe:
6oz Old Fitz Prime (80 proof) (note: these bottles are from 2000 so I am not sure, but taste variation may be a factor for newer or older bottlings.)
2oz Old Weller Antique NAS
1oz Maker's Mark
1oz Jefferson's Presidential Select 18yr batch #14
2oz Maker's 46
1oz Vintage Bourbon 17
1/2oz Pappy Van Winkle 15yr (from 2008)
1oz Van Winkle Family Reserve Lot B 12yr (2011)
1oz William Larue Weller (2010)
Now that I have several bottles of Old Fitz to use as a core whiskey I tried to add touches of all the major wheaters. I opted to leave out Rebel yell, It's just so freakin' awful. Sugar water just tastes better. I let this sit for a week and had it neat. It's was surprisingly good given that there are so many different wheated profiles swimming around.
What I would like to see is a proof calculator that can tell you what proof you end up with. If I had to hazard a guess I would say maybe 90...92 proof?
