Review #1124 – Widow Jane 10yr Bourbon Whiskey

Review #1124 | Bourbon Review #565 – Widow Jane 10yr Bourbon Whiskey

The Schtick: This is a sourced blend of bourbons distilled in Kentucky and blended and bottled by Widow Jane in Brooklyn, NY.

Distiller: Undisclosed Kentucky Distiller

Bottler: Widow Jane

ABV: 45.5% ABV

Age: 10 Years

Nose: Oak, honey, caramel and some vanilla. Mild tannins, but not too dry. No real ethanol. Lots of fruit here – mostly orange and pear with some faint banana. Overall, more sweet and fruity without being dry and oaky. 

Taste: Medium mouth feel. Bit of heat here, but not unreasonable. Oaky, some honey and caramel. Light apricot, some nice tannins. Fruitiness gives way here to more standard bourbon notes. 

Finish: Short. A bit hot here too. The bourbon notes give way to a lot of oak and orange peel. Confectioners sugar and bittering tannins. 

Overall: Not bad, but I’m not sure this blend of barrels is for me. 

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 4
