  • Intro:

    Jacob's Pardon is a new blend of staight whiskey's coupling distillate from Indiana and Tennessee. Age stated at 8 years, non-chill filtered and bottled at 97.1 proof, this is certainly an enticing set of statistics, though the $70 price tag may be a tough sell to some. Let's dig in.

  • Nose:

    Interesting on the nose - immediately reminiscent of cake batter, faint nuttiness, orange rind and some musty wood. More complex than expected, quite a bit going on.

  • Taste:

    Thin to medium mouth feel initially, though the ethanol content is entirely masked. Some younger spirit notes spring forward on the palate, a bit of a surprise, while notes of orange peel and Werther's caramel candies are most prominent.

  • Finish:

    Medium finish - pleasant, although not extremely complex. Nice maple notes, faint root beer, some caramel and light oak.

  • Overall:

    Jacob's Pardon is an interesting look at an operation doing something similar to Barrell Craft Spirits, but there's no doubt that a bump in proof (Barrell bottles at cask strength) would likely do this expression some great help as well.
