BTAC William Larue Weller Release Year "Cheat Sheet"

Posted by Ilya Dorfman on

Bourbon nerds (like us) want to be sure which year they are buying, just like vintage wine. Below is the quick cheat sheet you can use to make sure the bottle of Buffalo Trace Antique Collection (i.e. BTAC) William Larue Weller  you are buying is the correct release year. 

Each year of the William Larue Weller release is a different proof as they are all barrel proof which undergoes different evaporation rates as they age. Below are the most recent releases and proofs:

Year Proof Age
2000 – Weller 19 90 19 yr
2001 – Weller 19 90 19 yr
2002 Spring – Weller 19 90 19 yr
2002 Fall – Weller 19 90 19 yr
2005 121.9 12 yr
2006 129.9 15 yr
2007 117.9 10 yr
2008 125.3 11 yr
2009 134.8 11 yr
2010 126.6 12 yr
2011 133.5 11 yr
2012 123.4 12 yr
2013 136.2 12 yr
2014 140.2 12 yr
2015 134.6 12 yr
2016 135.4 12 yr
2017 128.2 12 yr
2018 125.7 12 yr
2019 128.0 12 yr
2020 134.5 12 yr

If you are wondering why there are not similar tables dedicated to the BTAC Eagle Rare 17 or Sazerac 18 releases, the answer is pretty simple.

The Eagle Rare 17 was introduced in 2000 and has been released every year since. It was bottled at 90 proof until 2018, when it was changed to 101 proof going forward. As the name implies, the age is always 17 years. 

The Sazerac 18 is always 18 years and always is bottled at 90 proof. 

Cheers!
