Jefferson's Bourbon

This is number 88 in the book 101 World Whiskies to Try Before You Die and number 75 for me.  The nose has orange and oak, quite sweet and woody and some vanilla ice cream.  Robust and assertive taste with oak and even a little tobacco kicks in early.  Vanilla, raisins and burnt caramel around the edges.  Sweet mint and rye at end before final dry oak notes.  It gets a little sweeter and balanced with a drop of water.  Good but perhaps not balanced for MY personal palate but I could completely understand if someone told me this was their favorite bourbon.
