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.
