Jefferson's Reserve Groth Reserve Cask Finish Bourbon Whiskey
This limited release bourbon was extra-matured in ex-Cabernet Sauvignon barrels from Napa Valley’s esteemed Groth Vineyards for nine months.
The principal author of the Declaration of Independence and one of the greatest Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson was elected the third President of the United States in 1800. During his tenure, Jefferson authorized the purchase of the Louisiana Territory, dispatched Lewis and Clark westrrtrtward in order to explore the remainder of the continent and repealed the Whisky Excise Tax. After Jefferson retired from public office in 1815, he often tended to the garden that he had cultivated on his Monticello estate. At the time, it was customary for wealthy farmers, including Jefferson, to distill the excess grains they harvested from their farms into spirits (George Washington was one of the country’s largest distillers of rye whiskey). As a result, each farmer’s spirits were unique and reflected the local terrior of their farm. The Jefferson’s brand pays homage to Jefferson and the exquisite whiskey he distilled. Jefferson’s Groth Reserve Cask Finish Bourbon Whiskey was first aged in new American oak barrels for approximately six years before being extra-matured in ex-Cabernet Sauvignon barrels from Groth Vineyards for an additional nine months. Groth Vineyards and Winery is a high-caliber producer out of California’s Napa Valley that is particularly well-known for its Cabernet Sauvignon, and these special barrels give Jefferson’s Groth Reserve Cask Finish Bourbon Whiskey its unique and robust characteristics. The whiskey has a starbright aroma of peaches, blackberries, caramel corn and toffee, which leads to a palate marked by burnt oak, red wine, cinnamon spice and dark and dried fruits. The finish is long and dry, with lasting notes of sweet tobacco, cornbread and baked apples. This release, which was released in the summer of 2015, is extremely limited.
