Widow Jane 14 year old The Vaults Blend of Straight Bourbons (Batch 1), 49.5%

Price: $150 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: David Fleming

The nose is fragrant and well-integrated with the oak, offering candied orange slices, peach, and notes of dried red berries. The palate is smooth and has flavors of bright fruit, drying oak tannins, raspberry jam, and semi-sweet chocolate. The finish is lengthy, with more fruit notes as well as brown sugar, chocolate, and pepper spice. The oak flirts with being overdone, but creates a balanced and solid expression of well-aged bourbon.
