Jefferson's Reserve Small Batch Very Old Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Jefferson's Reserve Very Old Bourbon is a complex blend of three unique bourbons — each made from a mash of corn, rye and malted barley — that are aged for up to twenty years and brought to proof with Kentucky limestone water. While most small batch bourbons are made from a blend of 200 to 300 different casks, each batch of Jefferson's Reserve is crafted from only 8 to 12 casks, causing the Zoellers to label their bottling process as "ridiculously small batch." The difference, Zoeller says, is like "making dinner for eight guests instead of eighty. You are able to deliver a great product that has the nuances you are striving for."
Gentle aromas of dried fruits, hay, hints of spice, cream and vanilla. Light and clean flavor with toffee sweetness and hints of cigar leaf and pepper. Long finish with lingering dry spice and sweetness.
