Jefferson's Grand Selection Kentucky Straight Bourbon Finished in Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes Casks
Producer Info: Based on our experience finishing Jefferson’s in innovative ways and in various types of casks, we felt strongly that the sweetness of the Chateau Suduiraut wine and the toasted staves of the French oak wine casks would complement our well aged, complex Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskey. We were not disappointed.
After hand selecting forty Suduiraut barrels, refilling them with Jefferson’s Reserve bourbon, and extra aging them in our proprietary “hot box” environment we have created a one of a kind bourbon. This combines the sweetness of Sauternes, the wood notes of both American and French oak, and the grain of a premium bourbon in a delicious, complex and balanced final product.
