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.
Sweet toffee. Light Werthers caramel candies. Faint red hot cinnamon candies. Overall, its nice and sweet, with a faintly warm finish, not unlike cassia.
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.
Short with some heat. Caramel and confectioners sugar is here in force with a mild bitterness on the backend.
This certainly wasn't bad, but it was thin and featured some weird astringency / bitterness.
