Review: Jefferson’s ‘Very Small Batch’ BourbonAugust 9th, 2011
Jefferson’s ‘Very Small Batch’ Bourbon, 41.15%, $30
The whiskey’s formula has been improved, now consisting of a higher percentage of older whiskies (into the high teens), compared to the original release (which I rated 81). Nicely balanced, with candied fruit, blackberry jam, soft vanilla, kettle corn, and a kiss of mint. Pleasant, unpretentious, and uncomplicated. — John Hansell
