  1. Widow Jane The Vaults 14 Year Bourbon (2019 Release)

    Batch 1. Big nose, lots of fruit and sugar, it smells like Juicy Fruit gum. Some cinnamon and sandalwood as well. Very pleasant. On the palate, the nose carries over, with more cinnamon, which lingers throughout, sandalwood, and Juicy Fruit, but then it turns, finishing with some Cherry Coke and Dr. Pepper. It's almost like two different bourbons, you get a different one in the beginning and at the end. Fairly long, slightly bitter finish, like cacao or pecan nibs, and a bit of cough syrup. 1/20/20

    8 years 6 months. Good nose, with sweetness, some astringent wood, and a whiff of bananas. Pleasant. On the palate, the nose carries over. Sweet, astringent, fruit, a bit of cinnamon spice that lingers. Hint of leather. Pleasant dram but not too smooth, when you want a little extra. The wood note is a bit too much for my liking, but I can see people liking this. 1/17/20

    Prav Saraff pick... the Madeira influence manifests strangely... reminds me of a flower that at the same time smells pleasant and funky... like walking past a dogwood. It's very polarizing. Perhaps it'll develop/soften with air time. 1/3/2020

    Strong malt on the nose, with a burst of fruit. Stings the nose as well. On the palate, not as sweet as you would expect initially, the sweetness creeps up. A bit of smoke and spice at the end. Dry finish. 1/1/20

    Doesn't taste as young as it could, which is a plus. Some layers. 1/1/20

    L940, 126.96 Proof. Smells like grass and cardboard. Oily texture but palate seems thin. Tracks the nose. Maybe a hint of milk chocolate. Spice. Otherwise an understated palate. Almost boring, but not offensive. 12/6/19
