Jefferson’s Very Small Batch

Jefferson's Small Batch

I got a drink of this for free when I ordered the groth cask.  Wasn’t expecting much from this, didn’t get much either, but I was glad to have tried it for the frame of reference.

Price: $30 for 750ml

Distilled/Owned by: Sourced / Castle Brands

Region: Kentucky

41.15% ABV

Aged For: 6 -10 years supposedly (Closer to 6)

Mashbill: 60% corn, 30% rye, 10% barley

Cask Type: New charred oak

Chill Filtered: Unknown

Drank: Sadly in a tumbler, neat



Color: Light amber

Nose: Caramel, honey, earthy, acetone and astringent. A bit of cinnamon.

Taste: Has a peanut flavor, vegetal and earthy. Leather and honey. Tastes burnt and of barrel char.

Finish: Much hotter than the proof and astringent. Vanilla, oak, and caramel.

Thoughts: There are worse things you could drink, but for less money I’d go with just about any Evan Williams, or BT

Score: 70 out of 100
