Jefferson Reserve / TWCP Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey...$45.99
ABV: 45.1%
Batch # J-1136
Bottles produced: 216
Jefferson's Reserve: The first bourbon released by Jefferson's, the Reserve is a complex, yet balanced combination of 3 different bourbons, including whiskey aged up to 20 years in American Oak. The result is a medium-weight bourbon with a dry, robust palate that fills with the mouth with flavors of roasted corn, caramel, toffee and oak. 

Jefferson / TWCP Ocean Bourbon Voyage No.5....$69.99
ABV: 45%

Bottles produced: 216
Jefferson’s Ocean: Aged at Sea -Inspired by the original Jefferson’s Ocean, which was new-filled bourbon barrels, the Jefferson’s Ocean: Aged at Sea takes older bourbon barrels and brings it around the world. Stopping in 5 different continents and crossing the equator 4 times, this bourbon truly is a world beater. What began as a fun experiment has resulted in a more scientific approach to the maturation process of bourbon. When whiskey was first distilled in Kentucky, it received intentional extra age from travelling on rivers and seas en route to market. This was not just due to lengthy trips but also the movement of the ship which forced the liquid in whiskey barrels to be in constant motion coming in contact wit the wood more often. At Jefferson's we wanted to tip our hat to this tradition by aging bourbon at sea. We put fully matured Kentucky Bourbon on a ship and set it on its way to crossing the equator 4 times, stopping at 5 continents and over 30 different ports. This process has added a salty, caramel elements that round out the bourbon's profile to create an American treasure that has been cultured as traveled by the globe. Jefferson's

Jefferson's / TWCP Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey...$28.99
ABV: 41.15%
Batch #C379
Bottles produced:  288
Jefferson's Bourbon: Similar to the Reserve, Jefferson's is a marriage of a number of bourbons of different recipes and ages. Profiling younger than the Reserve, at 8-12 years of aging, Jefferson's still brings in large bourbon flavors to this relatively inexpensive offering . The flavors of vanilla, caramel and assorted fruits assure an incredibly smooth taste and finish.
