William Larue Weller 1982 19 Year Old

An early release within the famous and eagerly awaited Buffalo Trace Antique Collection, which celebrates historic bourbon brands and figures. Buffalo Trace's parent company, Sazerac, purchased the Weller brand from United Distillers in 1999, 7 years after they had shut down the distilling operation at the legendary Stitzel-Weller.

William Larue Weller was a 19th century whiskey rectifier and distiller, who's W.L. Weller and Sons company was run by the legendary Julian 'Pappy' Van Winkle. The Weller and Van Winkle brands are both produced at Buffalo Trace distillery nowadays, distilled to very similar old Stitzel-Weller recipes, and are among the most sought after bourbons on the market.

William Larue Weller bottlings now tend to contain whiskey aged for approximately 10 to 14 years. However the earlier releases were aged slightly longer.

This was distilled in the Spring of 1982 when Buffalo Trace was still called the George T distillery, by the Schenley company. They would sell the facility to Age International the following year, seeing it renamed Ancient Age until 1999.

Bottled in Summer 2001 at 19 year old.
