William Larue Weller (WLW) is never shy about its brash proof, and this year it’s even more amplified by the fact that this is the highest proof expression in this year's Collection. It also happens to be the only wheated bourbon in the Collection, which allows it to stand out even more. This year's release embraces all of these unique traits and delivers a pour that will please WLW fans. It’s full of rich flavors and hugs you with a tight heat throughout the entire sip. The competition for high proof wheated bourbon has certainly increased over the years, in particular with Maker Mark’s cask strength offerings and Heaven Hill’s limited edition Old Fitzgerald and Larceny barrel proof lines. However, William Larue Weller is still the gold standard to beat, and this year's release continues this mark for another year.
