The reviewed bottle, from batch # 133, bottle #117/2,400, has been open for 10 1/2 months, is 75% full, and has been preserved for nearly all of that time with inert gases. At one time this Kentucky Bourbon Distillers product had a 15 year age statement. There is no longer an age statement, other than the words "very old" on the label

Colour: moderately dark

Nose: rich and perfumed, roses and carnations, deep rich maple and oak, tons of natural caramel and vanilla, lush. Beautiful

Taste: excellent translation of the lush nose flavours to the palate. Excellent and most delicous

Finish: long, rich, and sweet finish. Lush and luscious

Balance: there is a ton of nuanced complexity here and everything is in excellent balance. This is just a great bourbon, rich and full-flavoured. I highly recommend Jefferson's Reserve Bourbon. In the US, this is also quite an excellent buy for the money

Will look out for this one! Think it's not too bad a price here in Europe actually. Thanks Victor

Erratum: the various Jefferson's brands are owned by independent bottler Castle Brands, and not by Kentucky Bourbon Distillers.
