  • Excerpt: Nicely balanced, with candied fruit, blackberry jam, soft vanilla, kettle corn, and a kiss of mint. Pleasant, unpretentious, and uncomplicated.

  • Excerpt: Jefferson’s Very Small Batch is cheap, light, smooth, and manages to retain a decent character. If you’re looking for something new to try in the low-mid $20s this would definitely fit the bill.

  • Excerpt: Extremely youthful. It’ll get there, but it’s a work in progress. Mildly dismaying they couldn’t blend away the youth, but when using stock that is clearly this young, those less desirable youthful notes will always be present.

  • Intro:

    Jeffersons Very Small Batch Bourbon carries no age statement and inhabits most stores shelves around the $28 mark - extremely hotly contested real estate many similarly priced releases. We don't know who makes it, but it's bottled at 41.15% ABV.

  • Nose:

    Young, corn forward. Vanilla bean, light caramel, some baking spice. A bit of grain.

  • Taste:

    Thin on the palate, with signs of obvious youth. No real heat, but the green wood notes and musty grain makes it clear that not only is this a very small batch - it’s also a very young one.

  • Finish:

    Short, musty, grass and hay.

  • Overall:

    Extremely youthful. It’ll get there, but it’s a work in progress. Mildly dismaying they couldn’t blend away the youth, but when using stock that is clearly this young, those less desirable youthful notes will always be present.
