W. L. Weller 107 Bourbon
The Weller line of wheated bourbons are extremely popular these days, thanks in part to their close relation to the infamous Van Winkle family of bourbons. Bourbon is mandated by law to be at least 51% corn in the mash bill. Rye grain is the most common secondary ingredient in most bourbons, for flavoring. But Weller and the Van Winkles are examples of “wheatears”, where wheat is used as the main flavoring component. This tends to bring in a softer, creamier sweetness and fruitiness, compared to the “spicier” rye flavors. Old Weller Antique (OWA) is essentially the same thing as their entry-level Special Reserve – except that it is bottled at a higher proof (107, or 53.5% ABV). Both of these bourbons used to carry an age statement – they no longer do, but they are still believed to be ~6-7 years old. OWA is not quite as widely available as Special Reserve, but it is not as hard to find as the rest of the line.
W. L. Weller 107 Bourbon Tasting Notes
Sweet, like vanilla icing on a caramel cake. Light honey with hints of marzipan and whipped cream. Cherry. A bit of nutmeg.
Medium. Oak comes through now, as well as some slow, lingering fruit.
Caramel comes first, followed by an extreme honey sweetness, which then fades back to that caramel after a few seconds. Fruits come next, mainly dark berries and some prunes and plums. Oak is in the background here. Has a silky texture.

Hudson Four Grain Bourbon
Up in New York, Hudson Four Grain bourbon is made using the Tuthilltown distillery's unique recipe of corn, rye, wheat and malted barley. Hold on a minute, that’s four grains - like what the name says! Tuthilltown Spirits were producers of the first legal pot-still whiskey in New York since prohibition. Four Grain is aged in small three-gallon barrels to accelerate maturation, and each bottle is numbered and wax-dipped by hand. The interaction of the four grains is intriguing and rather unique.

Chivas Regal 25 Year Old Scotch Whisky
In a lot of ways, Chivas Regal is remembered and even revered as the first luxury whisky of its time. Way back in 1909, when the Chivas Regal 25 first allowed whisky lovers a glimpse into what a truly divine blended Scotch is, no one had quite done what the house of Chivas did with their Scotch whiskies. Whether it is the antiquity of having spent a quarter of a century in some of the finest Oak barrels known to mankind, or a groundbreaking innovation that first changed the game over a century ago, the Chivas Regal 25 does it marvelously.
