This 1991 vintage wheated bourbon is one of the last to come from the old Stitzel-Weller distillery, famed for Old Weller and Pappy Van Winkle. McKlain and Klyne were lucky enough to acquire some of the stocks and they have chosen to release it as a 17-year-old. Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled before 1st May 2011

Appearance

(Batch #1) Clear, mahogany amber with bright golden flecks.

Aroma

Shouts tropical fruits with raspberry jam spread over toasted grain, with toffee nougat, salted butter and old tea chest oak.

Taste

Starts sweet and quickly turns dry. A splash of water prises open this superb bourbon to reveal breakfast tea tannins, smoky dry oak, warm cinnamon going into paprika spice, dry brazil nut, blackcurrant jam, dried apple and smooth buttery caramel.

Aftertaste

Long, nutty, oaky, smoked paprika spiced finish.
