The reviewed bottle of Old Weller Antique 107, Old Label, with a 7 Years Old age statement, was opened 4 years ago, is 45% full, and has held its flavours well for all of that time. Newer bottles of Old Weller Antique 107 do not carry an age statement

Nose: lush pointed sweet rich maple, huge floral notes of rose and honeysuckle, marvellous vanilla, spice from oak, and flavours from wheat

Taste: excellent translation of the nose flavours which continue both lush and pointed

Finish: long, very rich, and very sweet. All of the elements remain long

Balance: this bottle was one of only 3 or 4 whiskies to which I had to initially adjust to its intensity. Soon it went from "too much" to "I love it", and I began to crave it for its strong delicious flavours. This bottle has held up extremely well open 4 years and gassed for 1 year. I have not sampled from a more recent NAS batch of Old Weller Antique 107. OWA107 is my favourite inexpensive wheated bourbon, and would be one of the first bottles I would buy on a very limited whisk(e)y budget. Would a new bottle taste this good? I'd have to taste one to find out. I very highly recommend Old Weller Antique 107
