William Larue Weller 2013 BTAC - 750ml
The Weller brand was originally part of Stitzel-Weller Distilling Company, but is currently owned by the Sazerac Company, who produce it at their Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. The standard releases of this spirit are the 90-proof W. L. Weller Special Reserve, the 107-proof Old Weller Antique, 107 proof, and the much sought after 90-proof W. L. Weller 12 Year Old. The Weller releases are coveted as “baby Pappy” due to their similar mashbills, and the slightly lower level of difficulty in procuring one of these releases from the liquor store of your choice.
The William Larue Weller release is a different animal altogether. It is still wheated, it is still named after Mr. Weller, but the similarities end there. William Larue Weller is part of Buffalo Trace’s Antique Collection (often known by the acronym of BTAC), and are almost as hard to find as the coveted Pappy Van Winkle.
