    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    Thanks folks, I really appreciate all the tips. I think I may have been taking the Binny's online search too literally. I do not get down to the South Loop much, I was at the Lincoln Park and Lakeview Binny's in the last month and did not see it.

    Unfortunately, I saw a good price on Weller Special Reserve and grabbed it instead. Cracked it this weekend and was not blown away. Because I don't have a ton of money, I'm gonna have to get through this and some other bottles first. I think Maker's Mark is better than Weller SR--I messed up.
    Thanks

    I'm a huge fan of OWA and W12, but I just don't care for WSR at all.

    I actually enjoy WSR pretty well, better than MM. It is a nice light drink neat and when I can buy it for less than $20 a handle while OWA is around $25 a fifth and W12 unavailable anywhere around here, I keep it in stock.

    I am sorry to hear that you didn't like it. I think we have all experienced this at one time or another with a purchase. You might try mixing a small amount of MM and WSR together (maybe 50/50) to see if that helps.

    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    I drank the Weller SR neat and it had this kind of numbing medicinal quality to it. The mouth feel is much better than Maker's, but when I took a sip of Maker's for comparison, I noticed a much better spiciness and that signature bourbon flavor. Maybe my bottle of Weller is bad, but there is this numbing kind of non-taste, again herbel/medicinal quality. I really wanted to like it. Maybe more sips will help. Many here enjoy the Weller 12, I think ageing may make it a cut above. I think I would most certainly dislike the OWA107, I do not like bourbon with a burn. As I develop what I like, I really want to stay away from burning bourbons. The biggest burn I want is from Bulleit, which I really love.

    Thanks again to all--trying to figure it out!

    They had a few bottles remaining last week but were totally sold out when I went in there today.

    It doesn't tend to linger very long.

    It doesn't help with a lot of retailers telling everyone that it is essentially Pappy.

    Guy,

    WSR is certainly not my favorite of the Weller line, but you may find that it improves a bit after some air has a chance to get into your newly-opened bottle. It's a phenomenon many of us have noticed -- a little time and air can really open up wheated bourbon. Why? No idea. If you think of it, let us know if your bottle changes.
