Jeffersons Grand Selection Suduiraut Sauterne Bourbon NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Castle Brands: "Thomas Jefferson was America's first ambassador to France and, while there, fell in love with the finest wines of Bordeaux. One of his favorites, listed on a 1787 inventory manifest, is Chateau Suduiraut, which he called President du Roy," an exceptional Sauternes. Based on our experience finishing Jefferson's in creative ways and in various types of casks, we felt strongly that extra aging our Jefferson's Reserve in Chateau Suduiraut 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 have created a unique whiskey that marries the crisp citrus notes of the Sauternes, the vanilla and honey from both the American and French oak and the leather and toffee flavors from our bourbon in a complex and balanced final product.
