Default Old Weller Bourbon Whiskey

So the wife and I head to the local booze mart and ask about George Stagg 09 Bourbon...1 bottle left...$59. The wife looks at me like I have 2 heads as I already have 1 bottle of Hacienda Tequila, 1 bottle of Benedictine,she threw in some wine, and a big azz bottle of Makers in the cart...so I tell the guy I must pass (I know I will regret it). Anyways he asks why I am buying the makers when I can 2 bottles of Old Weller from 2 different casks...tells me how much better it is than the floor cleaner I am about to buy (still like it). So I get home and pop the top on cask #30...very aromatic, I can smell oak and caramel notes abound...I go straight up no ice/no splash...a bit thin but very flavorful! What a great affordable whiskey! Have any of you folks had this?

Is that the 107 proof? Either way all Weller bourbons are great for the price. Nice score....but you should've grabbed the Stagg.

Couldn't agree more.

And you got to try something new.
