Jefferson's "K&L Exclusive" Reserve Very Old Small Batch Bourbon (750ml)

SKU #1322153

The wonderful Jefferson brand has a long history of bottling exceptional bourbon. Founded in 1997, right before the explosion in interested the American Whiskey category by Trey and Chet Zoeller, Jefferson's has long been a leader in innovative new ways to create and offer ultra high quality bourbon drinking experiences for an affordable price. While not labeled with an age statement, you can taste the extra richness in the Reserve "Very Old' versus the standard "Very Small Batch," especially when tasting side by side with our two recent single barrels. There's a more concentrated note of charred oak and creme brulee in the Reserve and that sweetly-spiced vanilla character lasts long on the finish without ever becoming overly woody or dry. There's a flurry of clove and charred wood on the entry and it morphs seamlessly into a supple and mouthcoating texture that all Bourbon fans should greatly enjoy.

Our exclusive bottlings from Jefferson continue with the Very Old Small Batch, a richer, deeper effort for more seasoned bourbon drinkers. This one provides a deeper impact, not only with a slightly higher alcohol content, but a more robust flavor profile to boot. Raw vanilla, maple, warm clove-y spices, barrel toast, cedar, and compellingly savory salty notes lend this utterly smooth bottling layers of complexity and depth. Perfect for cocktails in warm weather, or served neat during chillier months.

Born and raised in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, I feel it is my duty to review any bourbon that comes through the door. I'm pretty picky, but this Jefferson's K&L Reserve Very Old Small Batch has certainly caught my attention! Up front on the nose is pleasing vanilla, cedar spice, toffee and butterscotch. The heat from the alcohol is rather tame. This is even before I put a drop of water to open up the aromatics. With a drop of water it leans to more supple notes. Now more dried fruit, less pepper and cinnamon. Without water the taste is firm with big oak, baking spice and bittersweet chocolate. With that touch of water it really softens it, but I prefer it straight out of the bottle. At full strength the balanced spice goes down easy, though with a delightful dried fruit note to contrast. Finish is long and keeps you warm all over. Perfect for a rustic autumn night. Grab a bottle with some friends and just enjoy last few mild days before old man winter takes hold.

You will need the following: One Highball glass 2 oz Jefferson's K&L Reserve VOSB Bourbon 4-8 mint leaves 1 teaspoon powdered sugar 2 teaspoons water Then in a highball glass gently muddle the mint, sugar and water. Fill the glass with cracked ice, add Jefferson's and stir well until the glass is well frosted. Garnish with a mint sprig. This makes the absolute best Mint Julep. Get em while it's still hot outside, you won't regret it. (Copper Moscow Mule mug makes a great service vessel as well.) Try the regular small batch for a slightly lighter version.

United States

- 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.
