Widow Jane’s 12-year bottlings have become one of the toughest bottles of Bourbon to secure in the Whiskey world. There’s a good reason for that. The 2018 bottling was similar to the 2017 version that I got, but it’s a bit richer with more chocolate notes. I managed to snag a few bottles of barrel #74 from 2018, a fabulous 99 Proof barrel. This is a deeply sophisticated bottle of Bourbon that you just want to sit with and enjoy for hours on end.
Notes of caramelized brown sugar, creamy chocolate, baking spice and french vanilla fill the nose followed by layers of Crème brûlée, candied walnuts, and a hint of orange zest. I have even less of this than I do my 2017 barrel… don’t wait too long!
