  • Age:

    NAS

  • Intro:

    This is a well proofed wheater released from Buffalo Trace. It is a NAS product using the wheated mashbill. Old Weller Antique used to be a common, easily available and affordable product, but has recently been struck by the halo effect generated by Buffalo Traces other, higher tier products.

  • Nose:

    Sweet toffee. Light Werthers caramel candies. Faint red hot cinnamon candies. Overall, its nice and sweet, with a faintly warm finish, not unlike cassia.

  • Taste:

    Thin, but no heat despite the proof. Sweet caramel, surprisingly nice oak presence. Red hot cinnamon candies, faint pepper. The oak here was unexpected and nice - just enough to balance what could have been a cloyingly sweet palate. Faint plastic astringency.

  • Finish:

    Short with some heat. Caramel and confectioners sugar is here in force with a mild bitterness on the backend.

  • Overall:

    This certainly wasn't bad, but it was thin and featured some weird astringency / bitterness.

  • Score:

    4
