Jefferson's Ocean Voyage 3
Jefferson's // USA
Jefferson's released their first (very small) batch of ocean-aged bourbon in August 2012 with only 300 bottles for sale. This third batch has slightly more bottles to sell (about 300 barrels, rather than bottles) and was released in October 2014. Each batch has varied in time in barrel and time at sea along with the proof. The sourced bourbon is initially aged on land for six years before spending a further 6 months at sea. It traveled to five continents and crossed the equator 4 times before bottling.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"The aroma is fairly intense with vanilla and barrel spices, but fruity aromas of cherries and apples were discovered as well. The body is decently full with more of the same qualities as the aroma. There's a peanut-y quality on the finish along with a fair dose of char smoke. Try as I might, I couldn't detect any sea salt."
