This is a single barrel selection of a popular Buffalo Trace product. Distilled using BTs wheated mashbill, Old Weller Antique is a young wheater bottled at a fair proof, and tatered into oblivion. I seem to really bounce between a strong dislike and a strong like of these single barrels, with some ground in between. Lets see how this one is.
Big butterscotch, vanilla, cherry syrup and waffle cone. Faint tobacco.
Sweet, lots of fruit, cherry and melon. Big vanilla at first, turning to caramel. Medium mouth feel. Heat grows with time. Cinnamon becomes prominent.
Long, sweet and rich. A bit of heat, but a nice pipe tobacco component.
Better than many of the Old Weller Antiques I've had in the past. If not for the hot cinnamon on the palate this would be a real stunner.
