BUFFALO TRACE DISTILLERY RELEASING WELLER SINGLE BARREL BOURBON
New Addition to Wheated Bourbon Line to be Annual Release
FRANKFORT, FRANKLIN COUNTY, KY (May 19, 2020) A Weller Single Barrel offering is the latest addition in the storied Weller bourbon line from Buffalo Trace Distillery. Bottled at 97 proof, the Weller Single Barrel will be an annual release, starting this Summer.
“Many of our Weller fans have been asking for a single barrel bourbon for quite a while, and we’ve planned for this addition for a number of years, so we’re excited to be able to make this happen, said Joshua Steely, marketing manager, bourbon. “Our rye bourbon mash bill has a variety of options, like Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare, Stagg Jr. George T. Stagg and E.H. Taylor, Jr. bourbons, so it’s nice to be able to offer some variety in our wheated bourbon mash bill as well.”
Tasting notes for the new expression describe the new Weller Single Barrel as having a nose of cherry and mint, fading to vanilla. Caramel and baking spices with hints of cocoa explode on the palate, with a finish of cinnamon, coffee, and a hint of pepper.
Weller Single Barrel joins the Weller line up of Weller Special Reserve, Weller Antique 107, Weller 12 years old, Weller Full Proof, Weller Craft Your Perfect Bourbon, and William Larue Weller, which is part of the Antique Collection, released each fall.
The Weller Single Barrel will be available starting in June this year, and although the offering will be limited, it will be released once per year. The packaging will contain a cork stopper, like the Weller Full Proof Bourbon released last year. Suggested retail pricing is $49.99.
