Widow Jane Lucky Thirteen 13 Year Old Single Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey (700ml)
Widow Jane Distillery is located in the center of Brooklyn’s Red Hook neighborhood. First offered under their private single-barrel program, the Lucky Thirteen label now joins Widow Jane’s core offerings at 93 proof. Cherry picked by President and Head Distiller, Lisa Wicker, no more than a handful of barrels of will make it to market at a given time. Wicker notes that the final blend consists of straight bourbons from Kentucky, Tennessee, and Indiana. “The resulting whiskey,” she adds, “has a rich mouthfeel and lingering finish.”
While Widow Jane have begun to distill in-house, a good portion of this was likely sourced from MGP (It should be noted, older MGP barrels are seeing increasingly high demand and less availability, so they're by no means cutting corners). Bottled non chill filtered. 46.5% Alc./Vol. * Batch numbers may vary without notice.
Other reviews... [Batch 1 tasted] Aromas of dried herbs and new leather waft above grape jam, candied raspberries, and cherry cough drops, with more candied notes emerging over time. Water accentuates the cherry flavors, but also brings forth dry, earthy elements of hayloft and fresh-cut grass. Slightly abrupt on the finish, but this is certainly a concentrated and flavorful whiskey with luscious dark berry, cinnamon bun, café au lait, and loads of savory spice. 91 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: David Fleming 2021
