Weller Single Barrel is a product that doesn’t need to exist. They already run a single barrel program for their Special Reserve, Antique 107 and Full Proof labels that can’t produce enough bottles to meet demand. And it’s not like the barrels these are coming from different stocks either. Weller barrels are generally pulled anywhere from 6 to 7 years old (unless they’re Weller 12 year) before they decide which batch gets proofed down to either 90, 107 or 114 proof.
That’s right, they’re all the same mashbill and the same age. The only thing that separates them is the proof they’re bottled at, if they’re chill filtered or not and the color of their label. Weller Single Barrel doesn’t break any new ground on the proof or age. So why does it exist and why is it only released once per year? I think we all know the answer to this.
