W.L. Weller Special Reserve

W.L. Weller Special Reserve 1

First off, thanks to /u/dros_guy for swapping me this one, along with two other wheaters and some Stagg 2013. Really enjoyed exploring drams that I’d never get a chance to try.

I’ll have your babies at some point, we’ll be even.

Anyway, we’re onto wheater number 3, W.L. Weller Special Reserve. Based on the image that /u/dros_guy originally posted, I take it that the bottle was a tad older than the current. His had “Frankfort 7 year” on it, so I’ll take that to mean that they’ve recently changed to NAS and left off the area where it is distilled. Guess people got it mixed up with Germany.

So this one is made by Buffalo Trace, using a mash bill that uses wheat instead of rye in the mashbill. There is a rumor that W.L. Weller was the first to do this, though… well, citation needed.
