    They don't sell any varieties of Weller there?

    Makers Mark - good but a little bland.

    Old Fitzgerald - decent, the "1849" is probably the best buy, the 12yo is too pricey unless you find it for under $25

    Rebel Yell - a bit rough, but better than it used to be

    I think Weller Antique is a wheater.

    Re: Wheaters

    Anything marked Old Fitz, Weller, Van Winkle or Maker's Mark is a wheater.

    Knob Creek is NOT a wheater, but Rebel Yell is (made by HH using today's Old Fitz mashbill), sold by Luxco (erstwhile David Sherman Corp.).

    Not sure if it's wheat or rye but I know it is a bad bourbon.

    Re: Wheaters

    In my opinion, Weller Antique is an excellent option. It is both stronger and smoother than Maker's and usually a good bit cheaper to boot.
