William Larue Weller (2015 Antique Collection)
This wheated bourbon contains no rye and the wheat gives it a lot more sweetness along with the corn. At 67.3% abv this is a lovely dram that hides the abv.

One of the things I was originally planning to do was catch up more with distilleries I've not reviewed in the past
