After serving in the Louisville Brigade during the Mexican-American war, William Larue Weller returned home to his native Kentucky. His family had helped settle Kentucky in the late 18th century, and his grandfather, Daniel Weller, purchased a distillery in Nelson County in 1800. (When Daniel Weller died, his estate was inventoried and was said to contain three whiskey barrels, two stills, one mash kettle and numerous dry kegs.)

Upon his return to Kentucky following the war, W.L. Weller joined the family business and began working at his grandfather's distillery. Weller had a sharp palate and a keen sense for business and in 1849, he introduced the first bourbon ever that used wheat as its secondary grain instead of rye. Wheated bourbons (including Pappy Van Winkle and Larceny Bourbon, which eventually imitated W.L. Weller's mashbill) have a softer and more gentle flavor profile as compared to bourbons that use rye as their secondary grain. Wheated bourbons also have a slightly sweeter taste. Weller's bourbon was incredibly popular in antebellum America and ultimately forced him to place a green thumbprint on his invoices and barrels as a certificate of authenticity.

In 2015, Buffalo Trace Distillery launched it’s innovative campaign, "Craft Your Perfect Bourbon" movement, inviting spirits lovers to craft their ideal whiskey, from the recipe, to the proof, warehouse location and age. The result was over 100,000 Buffalo Trace fans voting for this wheated bourbon, an enchanting 8-year Weller whiskey that has won the hearts of bourbon fans all over the globe. This bourbon features a light aroma with citrus and oak on the nose. The palate is well rounded and balanced, with a medium-long finish and hints of vanilla, typical of many bourbons in the Buffalo Trace family.

Raffle Win for All

Recently had the immense pleasure of getting a taste of this exquisite nectar, when I attended a hosted tasting locally, that was an Alzheimer’s fund raiser with a $20/ticket raffle opportunity for a bottled the Weller CYPB. To our surprise and subsequent joy, the winner decided to share a taste with others who would appreciate this juice the most and opened bottle on the spot and poured a solid finger sample for approx twenty people in the room !!! What a GUY!!! Incredible experience and the juice is incredible, best I’ve ever had!
