Overview: W.L. Weller Old Weller Antique Bourbon, often referred to simply as "OWA," is a sought-after bourbon from the W.L. Weller family. Known for its high proof and rich flavors, this bourbon has garnered a strong following among whiskey enthusiasts.

Production: W.L. Weller Old Weller Antique Bourbon is crafted using traditional bourbon-making techniques:

  1. Mash Bill: It features a wheated bourbon mash bill, with a high percentage of corn, wheat, and malted barley. The use of wheat in place of rye in the mash bill contributes to its smooth and sweet profile.

  2. Distillation: The spirit is distilled to a relatively high proof and enters the barrel at a lower entry proof, allowing it to interact with the wood more intensely during maturation.

  3. Aging: While this bourbon carries no specific age statement, it is generally believed to be aged between six to seven years in new, charred oak barrels. The aging process gives it depth and complexity.

Tasting Notes: W.L. Weller Old Weller Antique Bourbon offers a bold and flavorful tasting experience:

  • Appearance: Deep amber with shades of burnt orange, indicating the influence of the charred oak barrels.

  • Aroma: The nose is greeted with a rich bouquet of caramel and vanilla. Notes of ripe orchard fruits, particularly apples and pears, are complemented by hints of cinnamon and toasted oak.

  • Palate: On the palate, you'll encounter a harmonious blend of sweetness and spice. Caramel and toffee provide a luscious sweetness, while a kick of black pepper, cinnamon, and nutmeg add a delightful spiciness. There's a subtle influence of oak, contributing to its complexity.

  • Finish: The finish is long and warming. The spices continue to linger, balanced by a pleasant sweetness that leaves a satisfying and slightly dry sensation.

Packaging: W.L. Weller Old Weller Antique Bourbon is typically presented in a classic bourbon bottle with a cork stopper and a label that reflects its heritage and tradition.

Serving: This bourbon is often enjoyed neat or with a drop or two of water to release its flavors. Due to its high proof, it can also make an excellent base for cocktails like the Old Fashioned or Manhattan.

Conclusion: W.L. Weller Old Weller Antique Bourbon is a high-proof bourbon that has earned its place as a favorite among whiskey enthusiasts. Its sweet and spicy character, combined with the absence of a specific age statement, adds to its mystique. If you appreciate a robust and full-bodied bourbon, Old Weller Antique is worth seeking out at Third Base Market & Spirits for an authentic bourbon experience.

Excellent bourbon

A few years ago, I Found an old gold-veined bottle Antique 107 in Dad’s liquor cabinet—a business gift in the 70s. I opened it and drank some. I did some research and found out that it has had a crazy second life. I was curious about the reissue. It is as good but what do I know!

Quite nice by itself

It is a solid whiskey I have drunk for years. I mix it with the 12 year old Weller 50/50.


Wow! This is an All-Star! There’s nothing but great things to say and taste.
