W.L. Weller 12 Years Old Straight Bourbon
The deep bronze color beautifully reflects the light -- perfect purity; the initial nosing pass finds nature aromas of lanolin, almond oil, and creamed corn -- in the middle stage sniffings, following several minutes of air contact, a toasty, oaky/vanilla perfume takes the aromatic helm -- the fourth and last whiff highlights the oily grainy quality that's firm and pungent -- a high-spirited, lusciously toasty, and animated bouquet that has top-notch Bourbon written all over it; the dry, complex, and toasty palate entry is reminiscent of the Centennial 10 Year Old's grand entry -- the mid-palate flavor profile is heavily
wheated(like Wheat Thins crackers), oily, layer, moderately sweet, and sap-like; the finish is long, sweet, oaky, and intensely grainy; follows in the footprints of the legendary Centennial and delivers the goods.

The Pappy’s Substitute
You are not drinking Pappy’s so calm down. Having said that, it is a very special bourbon. Definitely put it on ice and wait five minutes. You need to be patient with it to let the flavor escape. I am not sure it is worth the premium price, but it should be in everyone’s liquor cabinet.
Excellent product, great service — and let’s be frank, they have what you want!
These folks aren’t cheap, but they have what you want in terms of rare and allocated product, their service is great, and their shipping is quick and reasonable, I’m super glad shops like this exist — i’ll go broke using them, but the path down is tasty and worth the ride. Thank you, De Wine Spot.
