About Widow Jane 14 Year Old The Vaults 2019 Bourbon Whiskey
Reviving the lost art of marrying the finest spirits, Widow Jane whiskeys are hand-assembled in Brooklyn using the richest & rarest straight bourbons from Kentucky, Tennessee, and Indiana, in barrel batches of five, non-chill filtered and proofed with their own mineral water from the legendary Rosendale Mines of New York.
Widow Jane is all about high-intensity, their flavorful and well-aged whiskeys are cut with hard, sweet limestone-filtered water that’s known to make great whisk(e)y, from Kentucky to Scotland. Add New York attitude and non-chill filtration to that and you get a whiskey that’s unadulterated and robust in mouthfeel.
When the Widow Jane team set out to produce their own whiskey, they wanted to offer something that was flavor-forward, bold and rich with character but most importantly had a taste of New York. All Widow Jane whiskeys are proofed with pure limestone water from the legendary Rosendale Mines of NY, just 100 miles north from their home in Red Hook, Brooklyn. It was limestone from this mine which was used to build the foundation of some of New York’s greatest structures: the gargantuan caissons of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Empire State Building and the 27,000-ton pedestal to the Statue of Liberty.
This self-renewing source of water is naturally filtered through limestone and collects in the massive underground caverns. Comprised of an unusually high mineral content that enhances the natural flavors in Widow Jane spirits, this water is their fingerprint and a signature ingredient. And the legend surrounding these mines is what gives Widow Jane whiskey its name.
This whiskey is the first-ever release in Widow Jane’s “The Vaults” collection, a curated annual release of the oldest bourbons made from Widow Jane stock. This blend of 14-year-and-older Tennessee and Indiana bourbons is drawn from 20 barrels hand-selected and blended by Widow Jane Head Distiller Lisa Wicker, plucked from their Rickhouse in Brooklyn, NY.
This Vaults 2019 edition is among the highest-proof expressions from the Widow Jane whiskey label, finished in eight-year air-seasoned American oak casks. On the nose, you’ll find notes of worn leather, wintergreen, birch tree, and sassafras aromas, followed by a palate of tobacco, vanilla, lemon, brown sugar, cocoa powder and mint, and a finish of campfire, cherry, nutmeg, honey, and vanilla.
