    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    I saw plenty of W12 and SR today. The thing I haven't seen is OWA.

    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    i saw plenty today in louisville

    ive never had it and it hasnt really been on my must-try list, but i look at EVERYTHING when i go to the liquor store, then usually pick something new based on reviews, proof, distiller, and price. one day, i will try the OWA, but the other wellers havent tempted me at all yet

    You owe it to yourself to try both the OWA and W12. Both great values, and different enough that you may like and not the other (i love both, but depends on mood...sometime i crave the sweet caramel of OWA, other times the slightly darker taste of W12).

    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    okay, so today I meet my wife for lunch as we are both downtown for school/work. We go to one of our lunch spots and they have a special for a homemade burger, fries, and a bourbon....all for $10. So, i looked over the list and said, what the hell, ive never had the OWA 107, gimme that, neat.

    so, now ive finally tried it. it had a sweetness that was nice, the proof was getting almost to the good range of mouthfeel, but overall, it was a bit bland. I figure, it all added up to what i expected....a wheater with a nice proof. i can see the value in using this for vattings though!

    Bought the 107 last week and loved it... Returned today and picked up the 12yr for $20... Can't beat it... I think I may go pick up some 1.75's.. Heck those are only $40

    A burger, fries, and an OWA 107 for $10 is the deal of the century. How was the burger?

    damn good as always! its a daily lunch special this place has had for a few years. not one of those perfectly round hamburger-esque patties, one of those nice hand made thick patties, pepper jack cheese, and some so-so fries. the special says you can have any bourbon that lists at $6 or under on the menu. ive been wanting to try OWA 107 for a while, but not enough to buy a whole bottle of it, so that was my pick. i still wouldnt buy a bottle of it, but i do see why so many guys on here use it in vatting with other bourbons.

    the owner used to be the bartender at a place my wife and i would go sometimes for happy hour for appetizers and a wine (her), or lemon drop (me). he knew his stuff and is as personable as can be, so when he opened his own place right in downtown next to my wifes office building, we meet for lunch there now and then, when our schedules permit. good food, prices, and supporting a nice guy.

    they also have a Truman Special .....OGD bourbon, eggs, bacon, toast, etc....but im not a breakfast guy.

    Agreed!

    If it has a choice of onion rings instead of fries this would warrant a trip just for this.
