Christmas came early this year! Before anyone says anything, you saw that right, our Christmas tree is up before Thanksgiving. 2020 has no rules and this is one thing that made me happy.
This bottle of Full Proof could not have come at a better time. What you have to understand is that my fiancé has been searching for it for over a year. It’s the one bottle he wanted and want to buy at the retail price, not the secondary market price.
On Friday evening he jumps up from his side of the couch and tells me get dressed we have to go now and I need to drive in the HOV lane. The reason why, he finally found a liquor store that had one Weller Full Proof bottle and if he could get there right away, they would sell it to him. That was the fastest drive from Boston to Braintree, MA. In the end, we came home with a bottle of Weller Full Proof. The cost, $60.
Nose: vanilla, oak, cherries and caramel
Palate: toasted oak, caramel and vanilla
Finish: chocolate and oak
Was the long search of this bottle worth it? Oh you better believe it was! This whiskey is rich, bold, robust and the type of whiskey that hugs every single one of your ribs as you sip it.
This is American whiskey at its best. Even with its high ABV this whiskey still manages to be extremely smooth and delicious. It’s a wheated bourbon that is balanced, complex, as well as, absolutely fantastic.
Weller Full Proof is absolutely worth it’s retail price, it’s definitely not worth $250-$350 as I saw in the secondary market. We will continue to seek it out at its actual price as it’s a whiskey we want to continuously keep on our shelves.
