This month we're not looking so much at a single bourbon, but rather a wide range of single barrel bourbons, each as distinct as the people who select them. I'm talking of course about the Willett line of Single Barrel Bourbon bottlings. This idea, conceived by the Kulsveens at Kentucky Bourbon Distillers, allows groups and individuals the opportunity to purchase the contents of one or more barrels and have them bottled privately using the Willett name. While the concept of private barrel selection and sales is nothing new, many on this site have participated in such a venture, Willett is the first brand known to be dedicated solely to this purpose. Right now I'm enjoying a pour of 16yo, 135.2 proof from Barrel number 3705, Distilled on 11/18/1991, selected by our friend Dave Gonano. Caramel, Leather, vanilla and oak characterize this lovely bourbon whiskey. Thanks again Dave!
So share with the board your favorite bottling of Willett Family Reserve!
