Thanks to /u/theslicknick6 for the sample

Jefferson’s Bourbon is a company that was founded in 1997 by Chet and Trey Zoeller, a father and son team. They were purchased by Castle Brands in 2005. They are now distilling their own rye whiskey.

The company blends American and Canadian sourced whiskies. They try different things, for better or for worse, and push the idea of different whiskies.

Jefferson’s Reserve Groth Cask Finish is first aged in new American oak for six years. At that point they finish it in Groth Cabernet Sauvignon barrels for a further nine months. The red wine barrels are sourced from Groth, which is a winery out of the Napa Valley in California. The wood used for them is French oak.

No idea where the whiskey is sourced from.

Let’s see how this tastes, shall we?
