Event Description

Pappy vs. Weller Blind Tasting

Join us Saturday, October 22nd for the first in our series of Exclusive Whiskey Tastings! The goal of this event is to taste four whiskies in a blind but controlled fashion, and have a spirited discussion about them.

Did you know Pappy Van Winkle and Weller Whiskies all come from the Sazerac Distillery? This month, we compare and contrast very similar whiskies with very difference price points:

Name Age Proof Mashbill Distillery

  • Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year 107 Wheated Sazerac
  • Weller Antique 7-8 Year 107 Wheated Sazerac
  • Pappy Van Winkle “Lot B” 12 Year 90.4 Wheated Sazerac
  • Weller 12 12 Year 90 Wheated Sazerac

We will start with a welcome pour of Weller Special Reserve, and move into a discussion about Pappy Van Winkle and the Sazerac Distillery, followed by an examination of thewhiskey flavor wheel and general whiskey tasting notes. We will then taste and discuss all four of these whiskies and they each will be revealed, with the intention of furthering your knowledge and understanding of these great whiskies.
