Spring has finally sprung, and in the spirit (pun intended) of renewal we will be taking a look at some relatively new and innovative bourbons that have recently come to market. This month's choice is: William Larue Weller barrel-proof wheated bourbon.
With high-proof bottlings en-vogue, it was only logical that Buffalo Trace would expand on their success with George T Stagg by releasing a high-octane wheater. In only two years it has become a real crowd pleaser here in Bourbon Country. Those with excessive chest hair will enjoy this one straight up, while others will find it pairs well with a splash of water or cube of ice. It even makes a good bourbon sour
Discussion is open to all releases of this product. Comparisons to other Weller expressions are welcome and expected.
