Jefferson’s Bourbon prides itself on creating unique bourbon. And their latest blend is no different. It comes to us by way of a very unlikely source: Napa Valley. Please welcome Jefferson’s Reserve Groth Reserve Cask Finish.
NAPA VALLEY INFLUENCE
When not drinking bourbon, Jefferson’s Founder and Master Blender Trey Zoeller can be found enjoying a good Cabernet. He was curious to see if he could combine the bold fruit flavors in wine with the spice of the Reserve Bourbon.
Groth Vineyards & Winery sits on 165 acres in Napa Valley. Their Cabernet is highly regarded which likely led Jefferson’s to use their wine casks for this special release.
AGING PROCESS AND FLAVORS
Jefferson’s Reserve Bourbon was first aged in new, charred, white oak barrels for six years. It was then moved to Groth Cabernet Sauvignon casks and aged for another 9 months.
This new finish added a lush fruit flavor and a sweet vanilla character to the bourbon. Also present are flavors of black cherry and blackberry blend with the spice of the rye and the toffee notes of the bourbon.
LIMITED SUPPLY AND AVAILABILITY
Jefferson’s bourbons are made in ridiculously small batches and the Groth Reserve Cask Finish is no different. There is a limited supply, but you’re in luck, Payless Liquors has you covered.
