Weller 12 Bourbon

Bourbon has long been an American staple, yet has enjoyed a marked rise to fame in recent years. The downside of that popularity is that bourbons like Weller’s 12 Year, which starts with the same Pappy Van Winkle recipe, has become harder and harder to find. Simply put, this is one of the best bourbons you can get for a nominal price, which is usually between $25-$35. Aged 12 years, with a sweeter smell and taste due to the fact that it’s a wheated bourbon, if you see this bottle on the shelf somewhere, buy it. Let it breathe a little bit in a glass, and it will out-taste many of the competing bottles twice its price, which is something worth toasting to.
