This week we will be continuing with our private barrel theme and we're excited to bring you another Argonaut private barrel selection:  Jefferson's Reserve Very Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon.  Jefferson's Reserve is the older and more elegant brother of Jefferson's Small Batch Bourbon (our review from last week).  The Reserve is a high rye blend of barrels ranging in age from 8-20+ years that is blended in "very small batches."  Traditional small batch bourbons are usually 200-300 barrels, while Jefferson's Reserve is a blend of only 8-12 barrels.  The theory behind using a smaller number of barrels is that more care and attention to detail can be paid during the blending process, or as the folks at Jefferson's put it, "It's like cooking dinner for 8 friends instead of 80."

The nose presents aromas of burnt caramel, vanilla, raisins, and a light citrus zest.  It's light on the palate with butterscotch, citrus, and french oak flavors shining through.  The finish is short and clean with lingering spice notes and a pleasantly warm throat feel.

This light yet refined bourbon is best enjoyed neat or with a splash of water, but also makes a great old fashioned and is a worthy addition to any bourbon drinkers daily rotation.  As always we look forward to hearing your thoughts so come on down to Argonaut and pick up a bottle and let us know what you think.
