William L. Weller 2016 Release
Released within the famous and eagerly awaited Buffalo Trace Antique Collection.
In recent years, due to the known similarity between W.L. Weller and Van Winkle, and Weller's resulting huge increase in popularity and demand, the William L. Weller bottlings have become increasingly harder to get hold of.
The 2016 bottling features 145 barrels which were filled in the winter of 2003 at 114 Proof (57%), with the whiskey drawn in autumn 2016 after 12 years and 7 months of ageing at 135.4 Proof (67.7%) and bottled unfiltered. The malt bill features Grade #1 and #2 Kentucky corn, North Dakota wheat and North Dakota malted barley.
