William Larue Weller (2015 Antique Collection) Review

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.

Tasted as part of the Masterclass with Drew Mayville this is yet to be released in the UK

This is sweet and easy to drink despite the high abv and I really did enjoy this dram, it doesn't have quite the same spicy oak loveliness as the Sazerac.

I enjoyed this, and would happily accept one, not sure if I would buy it over the Sazerac but it's one I'd happily drink through.

On Release this will be available from specialist retailers like The Whisky Exchange but it will sell out quickly

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

This is really sweet, quite fresh, amazingly fruity and sweet, fabulous intense without spices, lots of lovely fruits and juicy, almost too sweet but it just works out good enough.

Palate

Soft sweet boiled sweets leathery, tobacco,and fresh pine needles, toffee apples, explosive tropical fruitiness, masses of edgy sweetness

Finish

Feels spicy but major abv instead, lots of tropical fruity sweetness
