Sugar House Drinking Team: Pappy vs. Weller

February 16 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Pappy vs. Weller Blind Tasting

Join us Saturday, February 16th for the most popular 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 owned Buffalo Trace Distillery? This month, we compare and contrast very similar whiskies with very different price points:

Name Age Proof Mashbill Distillery

Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year 107 Wheated Buffalo Trace
Weller Antique 7-8 Year 107 Wheated Buffalo Trace
Van Winkle Special Reserve “Lot B” 12 Year 90.4 Wheated Buffalo Trace
Weller 12 12 Year 90 Wheated Buffalo Trace

We will start with a welcome pour of Weller Special Reserve, and move into a discussion about Pappy Van Winkle and the Buffalo Trace Distillery, followed by an examination of the whiskey 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.

The fine print: You must be 21 years old with valid identification to attend this class. You do not need a printed copy of your ticket, reservations are under the name of the person who purchased the ticket. You may gift your tickets, but please make sure the attending party knows the name of the person who purchased the tickets. We do not permit add-ons, walk-ins, or others to wait in the bar. There is a no-refund policy in effect 72 hours before the start of the class.
