Two James Grass Widow Bourbon

$70.99

Size
750ml, bottle

Two James Grass Widow Bourbon is a unique bourbon whiskey sourced from Kentucky and finished in Madeira casks. This gives it a complex flavor profile with notes of spice, hazelnut, and dried raisin, making it perfect for those who enjoy a more adventurous bourbon.

Description

Nose

The first impression comes from the Madeira cask influence. Expect a wave of rich, roasted nuts like cashews, Marcona almonds, and even Brazil nuts.

Hints of dried fruits like figs and dates peek through, adding a touch of sweetness to the aroma.

Underlying the fruity and nutty notes is the classic vanilla and caramel expected from bourbon aged in new charred oak barrels.

Palate

The high rye content (36%) makes its presence known with a burst of spice. This spiciness can be both warming and peppery, adding complexity to the flavor profile.

The Madeira cask influence shines through again, but this time with subtler notes. Look for hints of hazelnut, adding a toasty element, and perhaps even a touch of raisin for a hint of sweetness.

The base bourbon shines through with flavors of vanilla, caramel, and baking spices, thanks to the aging in new charred oak barrels.

Finish

The finish of Two James Grass Widow Bourbon can be a bit of a debate. Some find it smooth and pleasant, with the various flavors lingering nicely on the tongue.

Others find the initial burst of spice lingers a little too long, potentially drying out the palate and overshadowing the subtler notes.
