Last Night's Tipple
The problem that I've had with WL Weller 12 year old before is that it has this disconcerting graininess on the finish. I think that I've seen this described as a "Wheat Thin-like quality" or something like that, and it's apt enough. I just don't like Wheat Thins in my Bourbon. Perhaps due to the chameleon-like nature of Bourbon or to my variable, amateur palate, however, I didn't notice that graininess when I had a pour of this last night -- just sweetness and vanilla. Quite nice.
