JeffersonS Presidential Select 17 Year Old Bourbon 750ml
Jefferson s Presidential Select is an ultra-rare, premium bourbon, bottled from the last year in operation of Louisville s renowned Stitzel-Weller Distillery, owned by the Van Winkle Family. The Stitzel-Weller distillery is known for producing some of the world s best bourbon and rye whiskeys. In the winter of 1991, the distillery closed its doors, ending production of some of history s finest whiskeys. 17 years later, the producers of Jefferson s bourbons found several barrels of the Stitzel-Weller wheated bourbon. These found barrels represent the last remaining Stitzel-Weller bourbon.
A wheated bourbon from the old Stitzel-Weller distillery. A gentle, richly-textured whisky, loaded with fruit and spice. Black raspberry jam, caramel apple, and papaya, along with warming cinnamon and subtle teaberry, on nutty toffee, nougat, and creamy vanilla. Spicy, polished oak finish. Superbly balanced, sophisticated, and very drinkable.
This 17-year-old Jeffersons Presidential Select Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is without exaggeration a masterpiece from the Stitzel-Weller distillery and is one of the world s leading whiskey rarities. Today it is a special collector s rarity for connoisseurs and lovers of first-class bourbon whiskeys.
This is a big bourbon, fragrant with roasted nut character, wood, vanilla, and cinnamon. Aged 17 long years, these flavors have melded well and coalesced into a deep and complicated spirit, with raisin, sherry, and chocolate notes coming across on the finish. At 94 proof, it decidedly benefits from a touch of water to open things up, though.
On the nose, this Jefferson offers butterscotch and candy apple with hints of allspice and fresh thyme. The inviting aroma of Tarte Tatin mixed with old leather is very present and evocative. Adding a bit of clean water accentuates the thyme notes with the butter nose giving way to a more floral character.
