STITZEL-WELLER TASTING I

Stitzel-Weller was closed in late 1991 / early 1992 and was made famous by popularity of the Pappy Van Winkle bottlings. The word now is that Pappy 20 is no longer fully Stitzel-Weller and the pappy 15 is all buffalo trace juice. We will try a bottle of Pappy 20yr from 2009 when it was all Stitzel-Weller and compare that to the 2012 release side-by-side. We will also do a few more comparisons and try a few more Stitzel-Weller bourbons as well that are a little less famous. One notable on that we will definitely open is a W.L. Weller Centenial 10yr BHC Louisville bottling that has sold for several hundred dollars at auction.  

The full line up is as follows
1.   Pappy Van Winkle 20yr 2010*
2.   Pappy Van Winkle 20yr 2012
3.   Cabin Still 1989*
4.   Cabin Still 2012
5.   Old Fitzgerald BIB DSP-KY-16*
6.   Old Fitzgerald BIB DSP-KY-1 2012
7.   Very Special Old Fitzgerald BHC Louisville 1994*
8.   Very Special Old Fitzgerald 12yr VS current release
9.   W.L Weller Special Reserve 7yr 1995*
10. W.L Weller Centennial 10yr BHC Louisville 1994*
11. Rebel Yell 90proof Bourbon 1982 Tax Stamp*     

*indicates that I believe that it is Stitzel-Weller juice  

Since the inaugural tasting has had such a high level of interest. We have added a second day to help welcome members that we could not fit into the first tasting. It will be Monday Jan 28th at the Daily Pint in Santa Monica. The line up will be slightly different but I think that you will like it.

 

The full line up is as follows
1.   Pappy Van Winkle 20yr bottled in 2010*
2.   Pappy Van Winkle 20yr bottled in 2012
3.   Cabin Still circa 1989*
4.   Cabin Still current release
5.   Old Fitzgerald BIB DSP KY-16*
6.   Old Fitzgerald BIB DSP KY – 1 current release
7.   Very Special Old Fitzgerald 12yr BHC*
8.   Very Special Old Fitzgerald 12yr VS current release
9.   W.L Weller BHC 10yr Centennial Louisville edition*
10. Jefferson’s Presidential 18yr* – just for fun to see how it compares.
