Jefferson’s Ocean is bourbon that is uniquely barreled at sea. The process is thought to replicate many original types of bourbons that were shipped via boat and thus unknowingly aged at sea. Today the folks at Jefferson take the barrels around the world to 5 different continents, crossing the equator 4 times during the journey. The bottle I tasted here is from Voyage #3, released in October 2014.
The nose is full of dried fruit with hints of citrus. The taste is sweet with dried fruit which is balanced by a nice heat and more spice than you would expect from a 90 proof bourbon. The spice gives way to a sweeter taste in the finish.
All-and-all a good tasting bourbon but tough to taste any noticeable change in flavor profile from the aging at sea.
The longer aged 8 Year Rye is cask strength and bottled at an 58.3% ABV. This particular tasting is from the barrel labeled 01A, note that each barrel will have different flavor profiles.
The nose is full of spicy rye with some underlying sweet notes. The taste is again spicy with fresh hints of mint. The finish is long, warm and herbal. As expected it has a much deeper depth of flavor than the younger 2 year sibling. These specific tasting notes are without adding any water, adding water opens up more of the underlying sweet notes.
This particular bottle is from a single barrel, 47-3D; and bottled at barrel proof, 118 proof.
The nose is spicy with a nice amount of orange and a little bit of honey – a very nice overall balance. The taste is smooth but the spicy with orange flavors shining through. The finish is long and warm with robust spice notes.
This is a solid bourbon, I look forward to tracking down the 2015 version later this year.
The Jonny Drum Private Stock is a great bourbon and for the price it is an exceptional bourbon. Jonny Drum, distilled by Willett, also makes a more entry level Green Label bourbon that is aged for four years.
The nose is spicy with woody hints, you can tell it is a youthful bourbon. The taste is sweet with a little rye balance. The finish is smooth with the sweetness shining through.
This is not a bourbon that I would sip neat or on the rock but it is an excellent bourbon for mixing a Manhattan or an Old Fashioned, so mix, shake, pour and enjoy.
