    Weller in Ohio or Michigan

    Does anyone know if you can buy Weller 12 yr in Ohio? I read a lot of you praising this stuff, but I cannot remember seeing this on the shelves. I checked the State's website, and they only list Weller Reserve in my NE Ohio. Again I have never seen that on the shelves either. I am starting to learn that the state's search tool can get your hopes up!

    Also, I was thinking of ordering a bottle online, but I have an upcoming trip to Canada via the Detroit area. Does anyone know if you can get Weller 12 in Michigan? That would save me the shipping costs.

    Thanks in advance for any tips.

    Ohio is a Weller wasteland.

    You must search elsewhere.

    Surely some of our Detroit/MI members could help out.

    Weller 12yo is not available in MI but don't fret cuz it ain't worth it.
    A wheater should not be watered down below 100 proof like the Weller 12 is.
    It's kinda bland.

    Thank you, Oscar, for your honesty. I don't get what all the hoopla is about. It's the most non-bourbon bourbon I've ever tasted. I'd recommend OWA or WSR over W12.

    Back on topic, luckily you can order booze in your state.

    You have to buy a Weller 12 - AND an OWA 107. I like OWA 107 better, but varying blends of those two (I personally like 60% OWA, 40% Weller 12) are honestly better than either by themselves, IMHO. I've tried different blends, and this is one of the few I've found where the result was really greater than the sum of its parts.

    Yeah, the Weller 12 stuff is just awful. Basically without any flavor. Horribly, horribly disgusting stuff. Don't bother with it. If you ever in a neighboring state like, I dont know, like Illinois for example, you should just leave it on the shelf.

    I really don't like it though. There is flavor, just more akin to Scotch rather than bourbon (to me.)

    Don't listen to me rndenks, I'm probably the only one here that thinks that.
