What’s the Secret?

Here’s a little secret for you: that $25 bottle of W.L. Weller 12 year on the shelf is the exact same wheated bourbon as Van Winkle Lot B for half the price.  Here’s another little secret: That $20 bottle of Old Weller Antique on the shelf everywhere is also the exact same wheated bourbon recipe and both of those bourbons are made at the same distillery as Pappy. In a blind taste test most people wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between Pappy 15 and Old Weller Antique. Hell, most people wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between Makers Mark (also a wheated bourbon) and Pappy.

So maybe you should ask yourself why you want a bottle of Pappy?
