With its drinkable suite of small batch bourbons and rye, Jefferson’s whiskeys make regular appearances at our home bar. And now, the brand’s bringing another product to the party with its recently-announced Presidential Select 21 Year Old Straight Bourbon Whiskey. So that’s good news. Expect the really-old-for-a-bourbon spirit to be released nationally on April 1st.
From the company —
“This is precious bourbon since there are very few bottles of this age with this complexity,” says Jefferson’s founder and master blender Trey Zoeller. “This limited release whiskey aged beautifully.”
Jefferson’s Presidential Select 21-Year-Old Straight Bourbon Whiskey consists of 15 lots of bourbon aged from 21 to 24 years. Bourbon of this age is extremely fragile; Zoeller discovered that these stocks had aged undisturbed for many years in a cooler area of the warehouse, which added further nuance to the spirit’s flavor profile and engendered a later peak. The resulting blend is a uniquely robust and extremely flavorful bourbon with deep, concentrated notes of vanilla, toffee and leather that finishes extraordinarily smoothly.
Because of the evaporation that occurred over the aging period, Jefferson’s will release just 2,000 cases of the Presidential Select 21-Year expression. So don’t delay.
