Widow Jane 13 year old Lucky Thirteen Straight Bourbon (Barrel No. 2010), 48.5%

Price: $90 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Aromas of dusty basement, varnish, earthy spice, and old leather reveal the whiskey's age, and the palate delivers plenty of complexity, beautifully balancing sweet and bitter notes as violet candies meet orange pith. Candied walnuts and butterscotch flavors leap from the folds of a leather wallet. The finish brings allspice and nutmeg, peanut brittle, and more earthy oak.
