The bigger, higher proof brother to the standard (and also excellent Jefferson's), Jefferson's Reserve is a well-aged, medium bodied bourbon. The previous edition was labelled as a 15 year old, also note the spelling whisky without the 'E'…
Nose: Gentle, dried fruits, hay, warming, hints of spice, cream, vanilla. Lovely sweetness.
Palate: Very summery, light and supple bourbon which offers good, clean delivery, pleasant sweetness, hints of cigar leaf, pepper and toffee.
Finish: Long finish, with good oak integration, a little sweetness and dry spice lingers.

My favorite bourbon. Subtle, smooth, with great depth. There are other good bourbons, but this one is special.

Very special. I was a single malt scotch drinker for years, until my son went to the Univ of Louisville to play baseball. After several visits to Louisville, one of the most fun cities in the country, I was indoctrinated to the science of bourbon. No more scorcher me, except an occasional MacAllen 12 or Glenmorangie. If you're starting to get into bourbon, try Basil Hayden's initially, a fine top shelf Jim Beam distillery product. Then progress to this baby, Jefferson's Special Reserve. The Aged at Sea version is a little different, but personally not worth the extra $$. To finish off your collection, try Willett's or Booker's. More burn, longer finish, not for the faint of heart. One you can drink over rocks, don't have to wait for the ice to melt, one where a little melt helps the flavor to linger, and a couple to sip.

How is this getting 5 stars? My local package store ran out of 1792 small batch, and I grabbed this in its stead. The caustic, peppery, alcohol overpowered any nuance it may have had. I'd have been better off pouring battery acid over ice.

This is a bourbon that I can rate 10 and not just pretend to approve in polite company!

I have little experience of bourbon, having concentrated mostly on malt whisky over last several decades. I have tried JD, JB, JB Black and Jefferson's Std, so I am not an expert on bourbon, though I have gleaned as much as possible from tasting well over a hundred malts. This is definitely a corn-based drink- there is that pseudo-candy sweetness in the aftertaste which can be sleazy in lesser bourbons but in this is quite pleasant. The aftertaste is siblte but long-lasting. The initial 'wash' around the mouth has a pleasant bitterness, subsiding into a 'yellow' note, redolent of hay, with the bittercandy quickly following on. There is nothing nasty in this dram- this must be stated. I don't think any seasoned whisk(e)y drinker would actually object to this and in fact it is quite pleasant. tonight I actually bought this in preference to Famous Grouse 12 yo ALL MALT, for a change. So it's not bad at all, but with nothing like the complexity of a Scottish Malt whisky.
