OHLQ Single Barrel Selections
Weller Full Proof
Weller Full Proof Barrel #448: Fragrant scents of a caramel, apple, citrus oil, and some brown sugar, with the occasional note of mint and some new leather. The full, viscous palate shows off its full proof and brings more of that caramel-coated Granny Smith apple, rounded by notes of cinnamon and vanilla with some fleeting red raspberry lingering on the tongue. The whiskey finishes smooth and sweet with just enough hanging around to remind you of the experience.
Weller Full Proof Barrel #038: The nose reminds you of an ice cream sundae, with notes of vanilla ice cream, caramel, and hints of chocolate and cherry juice. The palate backs up that dessert-like sensory experience with some added notes of cherry cola and spice flavors of cinnamon and clove. The mouth-coating texture leads to a pleasant, medium oak-rounded finish that’s smooth and easy.
Weller Full Proof Barrel #070: The nose greets like a trip to the bakery, with fresh-baked cinnamon rolls and vanilla cream cheese icing backed by hints of maple and oak. The palate brings flavors of vanilla, caramel, baking spices and mild notes of maple French toast with bananas. The medium-long finish brings some added flavors of crème brûlée but manages to provide just enough oak and spice for balance.
Weller Full Proof Barrel #078: The nose is packed with sweet scents of vanilla, stone fruit, strawberry, oak, and some cinnamon undertones. The palate offers a sweet balance of caramel corn, toffee, some marshmallow, and Nilla wafers with undercurrents of cinnamon sugar and moderate oak. The whiskey closes out with a long, enjoyable finish that reminds you that it’s a step up from its Antique sibling.
Weller Full Proof Barrel #090: The nose offers a decadent confectionery experience of vanilla icing, caramel candy, molasses, and raspberry fruit. The mouth-coating palate keeps the sweet experience going, but the proof provides a nice, taming balance. This is classic Weller, with foundations of vanilla, caramel, and toasted oak with accents of cinnamon candy and even chocolate covered cherries. The finish hangs around for a while with just enough heat and tannic notes to balance out the sweetness.
Blanton's Gold Edition
The world’s first single barrel bourbon was created in 1984 by Elmer T. Lee. Named after former distillery president Colonel Albert B. Blanton. Elmer recalled how Colonel Blanton would sometimes handpick a ‘honey barrel’ from the center of Warehouse H to enjoy with others. Many years later, the Blanton’s brand was created. Today, Blanton’s Single Barrel has become one of the most revered and award-winning bourbons on the market. The Gold Edition was the second version created, after the Original 93 proof. This 103 proof Blanton’s Gold is very limited, but a favorite among discerning bourbon aficionados.

Hints of spicy rye and tobacco on the nose, followed by caramel and honey, dark fruit and citrus notes. The palate emulates the same complex aroma with rye, tobacco, and honey. Oak and vanilla contribute to an extremely long and harmonious finish.
