Willett 8 Year Wheated Bourbon
This release is the first wheated bourbon from Willett. It was distilled in early 2013 using a "proprietary mash bill" of corn, wheat, and malted barley. After 8 years in new char #4 American oak barrels, it was bottled in the summer of 2022 without chill filtration at 108 proof. This is an exceptionally creamy bourbon, partly attributed to the non-chill filtering as well as the percentage of malted barley in the mash bill. The whiskey glides over your tongue like heavy cream. Honey, cinnamon, apple, and brown butter begin the palate, with hints of chai and ripe pear coming in after a few moments.
