In todays environment of secondary pricing and even liquor store owners price gouging, it's refreshing to find a store owner who prices their stuff fairly. Weller 12 has to be one of the most over-hyped and over-priced bourbons that exists right now. It's supposed to be in the $30-40 range but I've seen stores mark it up as high as $200! Thanks to Ray at Village Bonsall Market I was able to buy this bottle for just $40! (Bonsall is a small little town in North County, San Diego between Vista, Oceanside and Fallbrook.)
I could have been a prick and bought the other bottle he had just to re-sell it, but I don't want to support the price gouging market. I left the other bottle on the shelf so hopefully I gain some good whiskey karma. :)
Weller 12 is a wheated bourbon and some people will call it the poor man's Pappy. I won't leave a review for this one here, I'll save it for our Youtube channel. Bottom line is, Weller 12 for $40 is a hard to get Deadass Deal!
If he still has a bottle on his shelf and you want it, please make sure to mention that Brolic Whiskey sent you.

As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
