Weller Full Proof Bourbon. Image courtesy Buffalo Trace.This wheated Bourbon from Buffalo Trace gets its “full proof” name from the fact that it’s bottled at the same proof (57% ABV) as when it was first filled into barrels years ago (how many years ago, we don’t know…there’s no age statement). The nose has notes of tobacco leaves, leather, honey, caramel candy, and vanilla. The taste is thick and chewy with an intense peppery buildup of spices and touches of brown sugar, molasses, and honey underneath. The finish is long and dry with subtle spices. (December, 2019)
