Pulled from a lot of Stitzel Weller barrels, this 18yr release from Jefferson's lives in infamy to many bourbon drinkers chasing this particular whale. Bottled at 47% ABV and well aged, let's see if it stands up to the test of time and hype.
Thick, dank, rich cola, cherry cordial, rich amaretto. Powerful, opulent nose.
Sweet cream, caramel and butterscotch, cherry cola, toffee. Sweet, layered. Moderate to rich viscosity, no perceptible ethanol, it’s a cornucopia of old, dusty, dank flavors that delight.
Long, pecan pie finish. Cherry cordial candies, toffee, butterscotch, candied pecans. Rich, dank, tobacco driven. Simply opulent.
Incredible, and absolutely deserving of the hype these random barrels of the expression received.
