William-Larue-Weller-Bourbon

Claiming third place in the coveted World’s Best Whisky 2017 is US tipple William Larue Weller Bourbon. According to the Buffalo Trace Distillery, pioneer W.L. Weller was the first distiller to produce Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey using wheat instead of rye in the mash bill. His company went on to merge with Pappy Van Winkle’s A. Ph. Stitzel Distillery to form the Stitzel-Weller Distillery, becoming renowned for such brands as W.L. Weller, Old Fitzgerald, Rebel Yell and Cabin Still. His legacy lives on with this namesake expression, which boasts notes of baked cinnamon, vanilla, and hints of orange citrus.
