Jefferson Ocean Single Barrel Bourbon Wheated Mash Bill...$69.99
Ocean Voyage 15 plied the seas above and below the equator in relatively calm water and clear skies. Traffic moved on schedule through the Panama Canal in both directions and there were no significant delays at any of the ports on the five contine visited.
What really made Ocean Voyage 15 unique was that is was our first "Wheated" voyage.
"The bourbon barreled for this voyage uses wheat as its small grain instead of the typical rye. Wheat is less flavorful than rye so durithe maturation process it allows more of the corn's sweetness and the wood's vanilla to come through prior to being loaded onto our ships. I was beyond excited to get these barrels back and taste how the Ocean waves, salty air and heat transformed this bourbon. Salt was the dominate note that popped as I nosed this bourbo, it was more evident than all the other rye voyages. The first thing I noticed was the viscosity of this bourbon, a full and bready mouthfeel after the initial sip. Upfront a salted Creme Brulee with vanilla gives way to tobacco and oak mid palate, the wood staves provide a lingering brininess that stays with you through the finish." -- Jeffersons
