    Both, if you can afford it and have had neither. 3 years ago I would have said Saz 18, but today I would pick the WLW hands down. The only way to know is to try it all.

    Well, with one being a rye and the other a wheater, they are definitley opposite ends of the spectrum. Did you get any VW? If so, mix it up and grab the rye.

    Taste is subjective and though many love the Weller, I have never liked it. Saz is the least produced of the BTAC and the only one I put any effort into chasing. Also keep in mind that while WLW will be produced every year, the current Saz juice has only a few short years left.

    Nice problem to have!

    Value is definitely in the Weller. I love this years Saz 18 but I would choose the Weller for dependable taste and value

    I would go with the WLW but that is solely based on my love for it, I find it to be my favorite out of the collection.

    Best regards, Tony

    WLW would be my choice as well although if I had the choice for both, I'd bunker down.

    If both is an option, both. Otherwise WLW for me.

    Get the Saz. Send me the Weller. Just kidding.

    I just can't get into ryes even though I've tried. Wheaters, especially Weller's, are my bread and butter. I personally would get the Weller.

    Joe's just a wee bit biased.

    It is supposed to be a gift, and I will go with the WLW, I think. Don't have the option of both.
