Widow Jane 13 yrs Breaking Bourbon "Bourbon Widow" Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey
Widow Jane Distillery is located in the center of Brooklyn’s Red Hook neighborhood. While Widow Jane does distill in-house, this particular selection was from barrels sourced from MGP. With older MGP barrels seeing increasingly high demand and less availability, we jumped at the chance to select a barrel.
Of the barrels offered, the flavor range was relatively tight. Each barrel was really good, offering a classic bourbon flavor profile with the right balance of oak. For this pick, it meant sussing out the slight nuances between barrels.
Ultimately, we found one barrel to have a little more character, a deeper vein of oak, and slightly more intensity of sweetness. While we generally tend to lean towards a higher proof, the lower but still robust 99 Proofpoint actually works really well with this bourbon. Considering its higher age and oak influence, this results in a bourbon that favors elegance over a bombastic explosion of flavor. It’s a more classic aged bourbon experience, and one that should be savored.
