Sazerac company has filed a new single barrel label which has been approved and appears on the TTB website.
According to the filing, the single barrel expressions will be bottled at a middle-of-the-road 97 proof. This proof is a middle-ground between the Special Reserve’s 90 proof and the 107’s proof.
Weller’s Full Proof, which weighs in at 117, has captured the hearts of barrel strength fans everywhere. However, the CYPB release that was created and voted on by fans of the brand proofed in at 95.
Now, the Weller single barrel gives a nice round to the portfolio giving bourbon drinkers Weller expressions at 90, 95, 97, 107, and 117 proof.
It’s worth noting that some stores are capable of getting single barrels from Weller currently, however those are few and far in-between and this release is most likely a way for Weller to capitalize on those looking for unique expressions and flavors with a base they know and love.
Though the label has been filed we don’t know much more. The distillery should update us shortly as to their plans with the label.
