Jefferson's Reserve Very Old Bourbon (750ml)

SKU #1038183 Whisky Advocate

 The whiskey's formula has been improved, and now consists of a higher percentage of older whiskies (into the high teens) than the original release...Nicely balanced, with candied fruit, blackberry jam, soft vanilla, kettle corn, and a kiss of mint. Pleasant, unpretentious, and uncomplicated. (Vol. 20, #3)

K&L Notes

A medium-weight, small batch, aged bourbon that delivers richness and elegance. Aromas of peaches, vanilla, raisins and butterscotch carry through to the palate, which also shows flavors suggestive of dates, orange and blackberry. Sweet, and warm through to the smooth, Cognac-like finish. 94 points Beverage Testing Institute: "Deep amber copper color. Sexy aromas of dark chocolate, dried cherries, and roasted nuts. A vibrant supple entry leads to a fruity-yet-dry medium-full body of rich toffee, nut, and dried cherry and golden raisin flavors with a long, hearty and sweet finish. Wonderful rich flavor and a lingering, warming finish."

The excellent Jefferson's Reserve Bourbons have long been a darling of knowledgeable drinkers around the country. Some purists harp on the fact that we don't actually know who distilled it and likely the bottler is prohibited by contractual law from divulging their sources, but that doesn't actually preclude the whiskey from being exceptional. These guys are making whiskey on a tiny scale (batches are less than 20 barrels) and include whiskies up to 15 years old. In fact, Jefferson says that 50% of this bottle at least 15 years old! That whiskey is then blended with up to 3 other bourbons for one of the best values in the store. Old whiskey flavor at totally reasonable prices.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
