WIDOW JANE LUCKY THIRTEEN WHISKEY
Region: Brooklyn, New York
What's So Special: Widow Jane scours the country for the finest barrels of Straight Bourbon & Rye Whiskeys. Hand assembled in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, they bring these to you with non chill-filtration, and proofed with a hard-yet-sweet pure limestone water from the Legendary Rosendale Mines of Upstate New York. Widow Jane also distills using the finest non-GMO ingredients, including corn varietals such as Baby Jane that are unique to them and that they have nurtured over many years.
Tastes Like: A nose of vanilla bean, Earl Grey tea, caramel & sweet tobacco, with a palate of pecan pie, whole grain toast, and grapefruit peel. The finish is nutmeg, birch beer, and dry oak tannin.
How to Drink: Neat or over a little ice. This is one whiskey that benefits from drinking on its own.
What the Pros Say: Distiller - 4.1/5: "Once only released as part of a private single barrel program, this bourbon, though still in limited quantities, is now a permanent product in Widow Jane's core lineup. The whiskey is aged 13 years in a small selection of American oak barrels hand-picked by Widow Jane President and Head Distiller Lisa Wicker and proofed with limestone-rich water from Rosendale Mines of NY. It is bottled at 93 proof and available as of September, 2021."
