Jefferson’s Bourbon Review

Who makes it? Castle Brands

Kris and Erik found that straight for the bottle it had a sweet spicy smell.  On the first pull Kris thought it had a nice flavor that wasn’t overpowering without a harsh finish.  Erik took in a sweet smell and raisnins. That might of been the mixture of vanilla, butterscothch notes we were supposed to smell. Adding a couple of ice cubes Kris thought it mellowed it out nicely for a relaxing sipping and before you know it it’s gone. In the end Kris really enjoyed Jefferson’s Bourbon and gave it high marks and put it as high as 4 out of 5 while Erik gave it a solid 3.5.

How much: It’ll cost you about 29.99$ a bottle.

What do you get in the bottle:  Actually four different Kentucky straight bourbon whiskies of different ages and combining them together for a blended bourbon  at 80 proof.

A little history.  It was started by Trey Zoeller(a native Kentuckian) and his father Chet who is a bourbon historian.  How they got the name, they simply had no marketing budget and wanted a memorable name so they picked Jefferson’s and put his image on the bottle.  My favorite tidbit is that an 8th generation grandmother was arrested in 1799 for moonshining.
