Widow Jane 10 year old Decadence (Batch 2), 45.5%

Price: $80 Issue: Spring 2021 Reviewer: Ted Simmons

A blend of straight bourbons finished in maple syrup barrels. The nose is rich with brown sugar, honey, orange peel, and rose oil; elegant and polished. The palate suggests hot chocolate, raspberry jam, and bitter cherries, a syrupy sweetness shining through. The finish shows good length and continued sweetness with brown sugar glaze, cocoa powder, and coffee cake. A dessert lover's dream, the finishing cask sweetness is the star here.
