Jefferson's Presidential Select (Batch #1), 1991 Vintage, 17 year old, 47%

Price: $90.00 Issue: Winter 2009 Reviewer: John Hansell

A wheated bourbon from the old Stitzel-Weller distillery. A gentle, richly-textured whiskey, loaded with fruit and spice. Black raspberry jam, caramel apple, and papaya, along with warming cinnamon and subtle teaberry, on nutty toffee, nougat, and creamy vanilla. Spicy, polished oak finish. Superbly balanced, sophisticated, and very drinkable. An outstanding whiskey!
