A few months back I offered our Club a rare find of Jefferson’s Ocean Wheat. It was the only one of its kind. I snagged that barrel from Dan Burke the C.B.O (chief barrel officer) at Jefferson’s but that wasn’t the reason why I was there in the first place. In fact, I was actually there specifically to secure the barrel that I’m offering up today, which I thought would be the perfect thing to kick off the holiday season.
If you remember, I told you about Dan, the stoner surfer dude that lives in Kentucky, yes, Kentucky. He took a while to open up, but once I got him going, I think I got offered the really good sh*t. We were supposed to taste 15 samples to pick out this barrel. We ended up tasting 27… plus a few bonuses like that incredible Oceans NBR.
After 27 samples, you better believe what we scored is something really special. This is one of my best hauls ever – a rare single barrel of Jefferson’s Reserve at 100 Proof!!!
Tasting Notes: It leads with sweet aroma of warm panettone. Then the sweet delectable taste of fruit and honey. A warm burning at the end. And the flavor of this nectar stays on your taste buds more than a couple of minutes. Best consumed relaxing and enjoying on a holiday afternoon.
