Last night at one of my favorite Bourbon watering holes I spied William Larue Weller sitting on the top shelf and knew I had to have a glass. This Bourbon is barrel proof, uncut and unfiltered and nothing short of outstanding. When it first arrived it was quite boozy with alcohol so I let it sit for a little while before sampling. It had a nice strong caramel character with oak and char and a notable warming post consumption. Present were dark fruits, leather and tobacco with a nice level of sweetness in the finish. I have never been able to locate this in a store, but will certainly keep my eyes opened. If you have the chance to taste this one, take it. It is a really nice Bourbon from Buffalo Trace.
