On the subject of Wheaters, a friend and I had a blind tasting this weekend of Old Rip 10 vs 3 different cask strength Maker's Mark (regular CS, 46, Private Select). I picked my favorite two, correctly guessed what they were, and preferred the MM46 CS over the OR 10. The latter was obviously older, but I preferred the flavor profile of the 46 CS due to the spiciness from the French Oak staves (my wine geek side showing up). My buddy picked the OR10 as #1, but said all were surprisingly close. Just pointing out that available, reasonably priced whiskey (or whisky in the case of MM) can compete with ones that can command a secondary price of $500 (I paid $80). The MM's were 110-1 proof, and the OR was 107. I am admittedly not a big wheater fan, and will take rye over wheat nearly every time. The only Weller I've had is the Special Reserve and don't care for it and would not personally chase that line as the OR 10 is essentially an older Full Proof or Antique 107.
The MM Cask Strength came in third for both of us, and you can buy that here for $40. I would try the regular MM46 at low 30's and 94 proof if you like some spice. The 46CS is the best thing I've had from MM, and have had the RC6 and a couple of Private Selections. The 3 MM's we had came from a gift set bought in December at Costco for $70 for 3 375's, so if you see one, grab it. Money well spent even for one lukewarm on wheaters.
