Jefferson’s Reserve Very Old Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
The Reserve of Jefferson A complicated combination of three distinct bourbons, each aged for up to twenty years and proofed with Kentucky limestone water, Very Old Bourbon is created from a mash of corn, rye, and malted barley. Each batch of Jefferson’s Reserve is prepared from only 8 to 12 barrels, whereas most small batch bourbons are blended from 200 to 300 distinct casks. This is why the Zoellers refer to their bottling process as “ridiculously small batch.” Zoeller compares the difference to “making dinner for eight guests instead of eighty.” You are able to provide a fantastic product with the subtleties you are aiming for.”
Jefferson’s Reserve Bourbon is sophisticated, elegant, and multifaceted, much like Thomas Jefferson. It starts out with a scent of mild spices, dried fruits, and smooth, creamy vanilla. As it opens up, it reveals notes of toffee, roasted corn, and tobacco, and ends with a lingering, dry feel. Jefferson’s Reserve won the Gold Medal in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and a Beverage Testing Institute score of 94 points.
“Jefferson’s is a handmade product that I put my name on, which makes it hugely important,” Zoeller explains.

Founded in 1997, Jefferson’s is the brainchild of Trey Zoeller and his father, Chet, a famed Bourbon historian. They were continuing a family tradition that goes back to Trey’s 8th generation grandmother, who was arrested in 1799 for the “production and sales of spirituous liquors.” To personify the brand, they chose Thomas Jefferson, known for his curiosity and experimental spirit. This is a mindset to which Trey has dedicated himself, pushing the boundaries of the definition of Bourbon. Upholding tradition yet always discovering new possibilities.
Gentle aromas of dried fruits, hay, and hints of spice, cream, and vanilla. Light and clean flavor with toffee sweetness and hints of cigar leaf and pepper. Long finish with lingering dry spice and sweetness.
