Widow Jane Straight Bourbon Whiskey Aged 10 Years, Brooklyn, New York
Full of flavor, with the smoothness one expects from a top-notch whiskey. Named after a prohibition era formula. Bourbon clients of The Wine Country were all over Widow Jane's Bourbon as soon as it entered the scene a few years ago, and the enthusiasm for it hasn't waned at all, gaining new devotees by the week. Using the same kind of limestone-rich water from upstate New York aquifers that one finds in Kentucky, Widow Jane has crafted a full-flavored, rich, complex and satisfying bourbon that exhibits breed, balance and class. Limestone-rich water (not unlike that of Kentucky) is carted down from upstate New York to Brooklyn, where it is used in the blend.
