Jefferson’s Rerserve – Very Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Rating: 80-100 out of 10

Nose: Very fragrant. Fruity and estery, with the fruity notes being somewhat artificial: bubblegum, apricot and homebrew prunevodka. Also some sawdust, sandalwood and dill, and hints of vanilla and custard. After a while there are notes of marzipan , with rosewater and almonds.
Taste: full, explosive and woody. Not very sweet. Pretty floral and strangly medicinal: think Valerian-tea. The finish is hot and long, with a lingering spicyness, herbs and a nice butterscotch notes towards the end.
Very nice, well crafted stuff. It’s pretty wood-driven, but in a very nice and balanced way.
