Weller Antique 107 has one heck of a family name. It’s one of the very popular Weller wheated bourbons, part of the Buffalo Trace, including Weller Antique 107, Weller Special Reserve, Weller 12, Weller Full Proof, Weller Single Barrel (orange label), the Kosher Weller releases, and the super (duper ultra offer your first child as tribute) exclusive William Larue Weller. Since 2019, the lineup has been rapidly expanding even though availability is still so limited already I don’t know why they keep doing it. Weller is also associated with Pappy Van Winkle because they supposedly use the same wheated mashbill, creating an insane frenzy for anything Weller.

What you need to know is that Weller Antique is a wheated bourbon, replacing rye with wheat as a secondary grain in the mash. Maker’s Mark and Maker’s Mark Cask Strength are other well-known “wheaters” that you should also consider as you search for Weller, as well as the growing number of wheated bourbons being released every year. Let’s find out more in this Weller Antique 107 review.
