A few years ago Weller asked whiskey drinkers to “Craft Your Perfect Bourbon” (C.Y.P.B.) online and choosing their ideal bourbon recipe, proof, warehouse location and age. Thousands chose wheated bourbon, just like William Larue Weller did years ago. This w.l. weller cypb 750ml limited edition whiskey is the result of the overwhelming consensus—a wheated recipe bourbon, aged on the highest warehouse floors for eight years and bottled at 95 proof. Citrus and oak on the nose. The palate is well rounded and balanced, with a medium-long finish and hints of vanilla.
A highly versatile spirit, Bourbon can be consumed straight, on the rocks, mixed or in cocktails. When mixed, its most common partners are cola or dry ginger ale. As a cocktail ingredient its most famous uses are in the Manhattan, the Julep and the Whiskey Sour.
- Whiskey Sour – with egg white and lemon
- Old Fashioned – with bitters and orange peel
