    OWA stands for Old Weller Antique 107 proof. The older bottles are age stated to 7 years. If you find some of those, I suggest you buy them!

    I have a Weller 12 yo and it is excellent. So is this better than that one?

    Not better, but a higher proof whisky will have more flavor than a lower proof one in the same family.

    There is a sooty aspect to Weller 12 that I don't care for in the recent years of this bottling. OWA on the other hand...never met one I didn't like.

    The Binny's Weller 12 from a few years back which was Bernheim made 14 year old and then the infamous 2006 Everett's Weller 12, seen on a BT webcam being bottled with 14 to 16 year old DSP 16 made barrels...the exception to the above.

    I should think the profile is consistent on Weller 12 but I will always take proof over age.

    Bought Everclear last week to make bitters. 'twas embarrassing.

    Much more respectable purchases today, 2x 4R1B LE 2013, and some Founder's Doom.

    The few times I've bought Everclear I was tempted to tell them I wanted a fresh bottle, no old stuff.

    2x EWSB 2000. This is my favorite vintage of this stuff that I've tried, so I was excited to run across this.
