William Larue Weller 12 year old (2018 Buffalo Trace Antique Collection), 62.85%

Price: $99 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Tilled earth, tobacco, and leather meet clover honey, maple syrup, and pecan pie sweetness. It pours broad and mouth-coating across the palate, with a lovely softness and pervasive vanilla and apple sweetness, gently tugged at by oaky tannins and more tobacco leaf. A touch floral and gently spiced, with cinnamon leading the way. Overall, this exudes beautiful balance right through the long finish that resonates both prettily and powerfully with dried citrus.
