    Re: Widow Jane Kentucky Bourbon

    Why do you think the 823 is from one barrel?

    Have not had the 5-year, so i can't speak to it, but the 7-year, we thought, was indeed very special. it would have been great to compare the two sideXside, but they did not have the 5 year.

    This thread is getting interesting. I hope the whiskey is as good.

    Your marketing person wrote it up in the blurb that it was "a" barrel.

    So you have absolutely no connection at all, personal or business, to anyone involved in the company that bottles or sells this product?

    absolutely none. like i said, buddy and i were at mayville in nyc having dinner and trying different bourbons & ryes. picked this one on a random hunt and we both enjoyed it, a lot. i too am curious where they get the bourbon as well, and it may simply be good bourbon and the mine water makes no difference, or both. but it was a fine drink nonetheless.

    best,
    George

    "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"

    That's why.
