This is a single barrel selection of Old Weller Antique from a friend of mine. Noted as 7 years old and non-chill filtered from the old school bottle style, this should be a treat. Let's dive in.
Rich and musty on the nose - baking bread, toffee, creme brulee and a funk. Its a weird funk, a moist old pipe tobacco funk, pairing with some light cinnamon.
Medium on the palate, a hair hot, but not punishing. Toffee, pepper, light cinnamon, musty pipe tobacco. Really nice profile here, shying away from the things I typically dont like in OWA (pepper, far too hot) and embraces a lot of things I really do find enticing (pipe tobacco, creme brulee).
Long, a hair hot, but complex and loaded with dessert notes. Old musty dessert notes. Delicious toffee, light cocoa, hint of vanilla bean and cinnamon. Really nice.
This is a great single barrel, and goes to show not to write off an entire line if single barrels are possible. This bucks the trend, and is certainly one of my more favored barrels.
