The Willett Distillery

Willett 8 Year Wheated Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey


The first release of Willett Wheated Bourbon was distilled in the early Spring of 2013 and bottled in the Summer of 2022. The proprietary mashbill is barreled at 115 proof in Char# 4 American Oak. We bottle without chill-filtration to preserve the most flavor possible.

Distilled from a mixture of corn, wheat, and malted barley, the Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is made with all-natural ingredients. It is aged in new charred American oak barrels and bottled at 108 proof without chill-filtration to preserve its flavor.

It was released in the summer of 2022, after spending two years in American oak casks— first in new barrels and then once more when it was finished aging. The proprietary mix of grains includes a little wheat for sweetness and some barley for depth.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Big flavours of vanilla, fudge and burnt caramel come first, followed by peppermint, rye and a touch of leather. Some notes of sawdust are there, too, giving this a musty touch that adds complexity.

The palate is full-bodied and just a little bit spicy. The vanilla flavours are back, now together with notes of honey, oranges and a touch of black tea. Later on, distinct notes of cinnamon and peppermint develop.

The finish is long and warming.

Bottle Size: 750ml
ABV: 54%
