WIDOW JANE LUCKY THIRTEEN 13 YEAR OLD BOURBON 93 PROOF 750ML
- Whiskey, American Whiskey
Among the many age statements, even numbered years are more popular than odd and like elevators, bottlers tend to skip over year 13, maybe blending into the 12 year expressions. But Widow Jane Lucky 13 is turning convention on its head. This 13 year-old, single-cask bourbon, distilled in Indiana and further aged in Brooklyn, was selected by Oak and Barrel to give you a unique and exclusive bourbon filled with rich and peppery notes. How lucky!
For years, the high-rye bourbons distilled at MGP in Indiana have been among the most coveted for independent bottlers looking to curate the best whiskies for their customers. In Widow Jane Lucky 13, we found a bourbon that is sweet on the attack, then morphs into an elegant whiskey punctuated with pepper and allspice. The finish is long, with pepper-roasted walnuts lingering. We found this barrel of Widow Jane 13 so exceptional, we bought and bottled the whole barrel to share with you. Only 162 bottles available.
Nose – milky caramel, toasted cedar, fuji apple, banana peel
Palate – sweet corn on the attack, with a distinct, younger-seeming rye pepperiness. Allspice and nutmeg, some clove lingering in the back
Finish – long with pepper spice and lingering roasted walnut bitterness
