    Jefferson’s Presidential Reserve 21 year old

    A wheated bourbon I was lucky enough to have tried recently at Reserve101 in Houston. The nose has lots of fresh paint for a 21 year old expression, and red fruits. Really delicious. The taste is creamy vanilla, strawberries and then spice comes through building into a finish of rich oak and pepper. Very fruity and sweet for an older bourbon. I tasted this late in the evening and I strongly suspect my notes aren’t doing it justice because I don’t see much similarity with other online notes. At end of day I just remember thinking this is fantastic.

    I wrote in my recent review of Jefferson’s Bourbon; “Good but perhaps not balanced for MY personal palate but could completely understand if someone told me this was their favorite bourbon.” If someone told me Jefferson’s Presidential Reserve was their favorite bourbon…. I might agree with them.
