Proof66 Notes

Widow Jane 8yr bourbon is named for the Widow Jane Snyder, wife of AJ Snyder who owned the limestone mine that quarried stone for New York City. The bourbon is blended with mineral water made with New York limestone, which they claim has more of the minerals that make Kentucky limestone water so famous. They say it "tastes like a 20yr" and suggest looking for deep cherry flavor notes.

Well made stuff, lots of flavor and no bad side effects. A good amount of oak, not overbearing, mostly black cherry in terms of palate. Good aroma, fine to drink neat, the proof is a bit low for my taste and the price is a bit high, but tasty stuff at a good age. Since the flavor is so good, you'll want a lot of it which is ok since you won't get a burn from it or a hangover. At this price point I'd rather get some Stagg Jr, but I understand not everyone enjoys napalm. At least if you decide to pay $60 for it, you'll actually get $60 worth of quality... so far it's my favorite non-Kentucky bourbon.

Full of flavor with just the right amount of alcoholic warmth to balance it.
