W.L. Weller Special Reserve, 45%
Price: $18 ● Issue: Spring 2016 ● Reviewer: Fred Minnick
Once a 7 year old product, W.L. Weller Special Reserve no longer carries an age statement, but the wheated bourbon still brings caramel-forward joy and hints of watermelon and fresh-baked bread. Enjoy the short bursts of crème brulee, praline, honey, Jolly Rancher watermelon candy, and a hint of nutmeg, because it's not there long. You can see the potential.
