We have received not 1, but 2 Jefferson's Bourbons. This is a barrel, from Batch No. 746, of Jefferson's Ocean Aged at Sea Bourbon, voyage 17. ! Bottled at 45% this is a single barrel that we selected to have bottled exclusively for Kensington Wine Market! Our other Jefferson's KWM Cask, is a Jefferson's Reserve Bourbon

Andrew's Tasting Note

Nose: dark chocolate, salted caramel and soft oaky vanillans; citrus Jujubes and powdered sugar on freshly baked almond paste filled croissants; dark spices, fruits and more salty tones emerge with patience.

Palate: thick, toasty, oily and decadent; very fruity, more citrus Jujubes, pear eau de vie and fresh peaches; salted caramel returns with some nutty candied pecan notes; some dark chocolate and maple smoked bacon too.

Finish: silky, toasty and nutty with more, juicy citrus, salted caramel, candied nuts and dark chocolate too!

Comment: this is my kind of Bourbon, elegant and very complex; I don't want to pigeonhole it as a Scotch-drinkers Bourbon, but it is definitely more in that vein than not!

About Jefferson's Whiskey

"Founded in 1997, Jefferson’s is the brainchild of Trey Zoeller and his father Chet, a famed bourbon historian. They were continuing a family tradition that goes back to Trey’s 8th generation grandmother who was arrested in 1799 for the “production and sales of spirituous liquors.” To personify the brand, they chose Thomas Jefferson—known for his curiosity and experimental spirit. This is a mindset to which Trey has dedicated himself, pushing the boundaries of the definition of bourbon. Upholding tradition, yet always discovering new possibilities. The home of Jefferson’s Bourbon is located in the heart of Bourbon Country, and just minutes from downtown Louisville, at the Kentucky Artisan Distillery in Crestwood, Kentucky. "

About the Jefferson's Ocean Aged at Sea

"This bourbon started out as an experiment with just three bourbon barrels on Trey’s friend, Chris Fischer of OCEARCH’s ship, in a curious effort to discover what would happen if bourbon was left to weather the extreme elements: temperature fluctuations, salt air and the gentle rocking of the ship. The result was a thick, dark bourbon that showcases complex flavors reminiscent of other spirits; the almost black color and caramel flavors resemble a dark rum as the sugars within the barrels caramelized; the briny, savory taste from the barrels breathing the sea air is reminiscent of Islay Scotch; and at its core, it’s a true bourbon. Due to a massive demand from consumers, Trey has now commercialized this experiment and sent hundreds of barrels around the world. Each voyage of Jefferson’s Ocean typically crosses the equator four times, visits five continents and over 30 ports on an average sailing."
