    Jefferson\'s

    It appears that Mclain& K... Whatever it is , has a redo or a second line in the Jefferson Reserve. I just saw it today. It is basically the same bottle and is finished with a wood stopper. It only says " Jefferson's" and says it is a small batch. About 28.95 at a place that doesn't come close to Liquor Barn prices , I might expect to see it for 22-25 there.Any one seeing this yet?

    It'll probably be a while before I see this here in NY (I'll probably just see it in Sept. in KY haha), but I'm going to be keeping an eye out now Bobby. Thanks for the heads up. Are you planning on buying it when you see it a little cheaper?

    I almost did buy it but fought off the urge until I can get to Liquor Barn. They had 8 or so bottles so it probably won't dissapear soon. Jefferson's Reserve hasn't gotten good press here has it?

    Yeah, I think the general concensus was it is good but a bit overpriced at $45-$50. I mean of course some don't like it, but generally I think it went over well. I enjoyed the bottle I had a few months back, but never bought another one since because of the price...

    It comes down to that a lot, I feel that way about Basil Hayden's , I could drink it and enjoy it. But not at 32 dollars for 80 proof. Get it down to 18 and I might have a new friend! Don't waste any money on shipping this new Jefferson's, there will be plenty of it in Ky in September.

    Yep, I couldn't agree more, the price of some bottles kill the appeal in the grand scheme of things... Hey, at least now I have something else to look forward to picking up while in KY besides just the new B-Day Bourbon.

    I got one, I guess part of the price reduction is there is no statement of age and 88 proof.

    Re: Jefferson\'s

    Hey, would ya look at that. It is like a 'cheaper' bottle of the reserve. It has the paper label down the side of the bottle like the reserve as well. I bet that wooden stopper reduces costs a bit instead of that hollow glass one on the reserve as well. I'm definately in for getting one during the festival this year. Let us know what you think whe you crazk that baby open!

    Re: Jefferson\'s

    The lettering says;
    Kentucky Straight
    Bourbon Whiskey
    Very Small Batch
    Also on a neckband
    Batch 1
    Bottle 750
    It has a nose that is reminiscent of Heaven Hill but that is all. It Tastes and has the mouth feel more of a 4 roses. Very smooth finish virtually no burn, As smooth as spring water on a hot summer day. I think if I had a bottle of Bulleit there may be some side by side comparisons. This is a good one , Your mileage may vary.

    Get ready, Bobby. I have both now with me here in L'ville. If our plans work out, we will hook up and do some comparisons.
