Nose is sweet, with cherry, butterscotch and maple.

On the palate, the Weller CYPB is thin lacking in texture, sweet up-front with notes of caramel, vanilla and a pinch of cinnamon.

The finish lingers with a bit of heat, fruity notes, vanilla and more cinnamon which is present from start to finish.

Weller CYPB is inoffensive and pretty mild, an easy drinker, with sweet and bready wheat flavor, but nothing super loud, complex or remarkable.

The finish is long with very little heat with and spicy and completely uninteresting.

If you can find this whiskey at MSRP which is around $40 is a good deal, but is not worth paying the secondary market prices at which this bourbon is offered.

Weller CYPB vs Weller Full Proof: Which is better?

Full Proof delivers a better experience

  • Full Proof is infinitely better than the CYPB which is not even better than the Buffalo Trace, TBH and much less a champ in terms of value as the Larceny.
  • The Weller Full Proof is a very good dram but I’m not sure if it’s worth the hype making me prefer the Antique 107 which might not be as tasty but it’s way more affordable providing excellent bang for the buck.
