Jefferson's Very Small Batch Bourbon, 41.15%

Price: $30.00 Issue: Fall 2011 Reviewer: John Hansell

The whiskey's formula has been improved, and now consists of a higher percentage of older whiskies (into the high teens) than 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.
