Weller CYPB

by Bobby Longon March 1, 2019
If you’ve never been to Buffalo Trace Distillery’s fantastic and highly informative website, I’d highly encourage you to do so.  You won’t understand where this new addition to the Weller brand lineup came from otherwise.  For years, Buffalo Trace’s website has had an interactive section where you could “craft your own perfect bourbon” by customizing […]

Maker’s Mark Cask Strength

by Bobby Longon January 11, 2019
While it’s one of the most popular bourbons in the United States by sales volume, Maker’s Mark tends to get overlooked in enthusiast circles.  It’s ironic how a community that usually appears starved for wheated bourbon can ignore the most readily available one on the shelf.  This is of course speaking of the ordinary release […]

Wheater Showdown: Weller 12 Year VS. Van Winkle Lot B 12 Year

by Andrew Owenon February 8, 2018
  Pappy and Weller.  Are there two names more deified in the current bourbon boom?  I would guess not.  But interestingly, one could count on both hands the number of years its been since the Pappy Van Winkle (or Old Rip) and Weller bourbons sat on the shelves in stores for reasonable prices collecting dust.  Sure, they […]

1792 Sweet Wheat

by Bobby Longon November 21, 2017
Produced in Bardstown, Kentucky by the Barton 1792 Distillery, which is owned by Sazerac Company (i.e. Buffalo Trace), this is the first and only wheated whiskey in the 1792 lineup. Most bourbons have rye as the second largest contributing grain (bourbon must be 51% corn) but wheaters opt instead to use wheat. Wheaters have been […]
