Jefferson's Reserve Very Old Very Small Batch Bourbon

Founded in 1997, Jefferson's is a bit of a newer company. Trey Zoeller is the "Master Blender" (not Master Distiller) as Jefferson's sources their juice rather than distill it themselves. They have a variety of products and are doing some very innovative things.

This bottle is No. 1952 of 2400. Batch No. 115. Proof is 90.2%. 

Color: Light Gold

Nose: Floral, Butterscotch, Creamy Vanilla, Raisins. 

Taste: Very smooth. Brown Sugar,  Tobacco, Rye spice, Oak. 

Finish: Short and crisp. Tobacco and Oak lingers.

Conclusion: Very smooth and easy to drink however the flavor profile is quite subtle. While I recommend you give this try at a bar or pick it up on sale,  at $50-60, this is not something that I would keep stocked at the home bar. 

My Rating: B (Good)
