    Widow Jane Kentucky Bourbon

    Found a store selling Widow Jane ($38. 45.5% ABV, from Cacao Prieto)

    It is described as "Cacao Prieto hand selected a barrel of five year old
    Kentucky Bourbon, which was transported to their Brooklyn distillery
    and cut to proof with pure limestone mineral rich water from the Widow
    Jane Mine in Rosendale, New York. Bold, complex aromas of spiced fruit,
    vanilla, cinnamon, caramel and toffee carry through to the palate where
    they merge with notes of citrus fruit, spicy oak and earthy mineral on the
    long finish. Only 823 bottles were produced of this limited edition bourbon,
    each hand numbered and labeled with the bottling date
    .
    "

    The Cacao Prieto website isn't coming up for me so no additional
    information from them. Anyone familiar with this stuff?

    Re: Widow Jane Kentucky Bourbon

    My brother stumbled across this and was asking me what I knew about it (nothing). Has anyone tried it?

    Looks like a Buffalo Trace Bottle.

    It's a standard bottle. Smooth Ambler uses it. Just want to prevent people from jumping to the conclusion that it's Buffalo Trace whiskey. It might be, but the bottle proves nothing.

    That's for sure. I recently ran across a bottle of Rebel Yell cinnamon liqueur that came in a Weller Centennial/Elmer T. Lee-style bottle. Talk about confusing!

    Re: Widow Jane Kentucky Bourbon

    Here we have, ad nauseum, the typical load of crap, including the ringing endorsement from someone making their first SB post. Spent just enough time on the website to see that they are claiming their "Kentucky" bourbon was distilled in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn. So tired of people who can't tell the truth about their products. Nah!

    Was that the five-year or seven-year you had? I heard the five year was crap but by seven years it had evolved into something special. Probably because it was brought to proof with mineral rich water instead of the usual distilled water.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.
