This bourbon started out as an experiment with just three bourbon barrels on Chris Fischer's ship in a curious effort to discover what would happen if bourbon was left to weather the extreme elements: temperature fluctuations, salt air and the gentle rocking of the ship. The result was a thick, dark bourbon that showcases complex flavours reminiscent of other spirits; the almost black colour and caramel flavours resemble a dark rum as the sugars within the barrels caramelized; the briny, savoury taste from the barrels breathing the sea air is reminiscent of Islay Scotch; and at its core, it’s a true bourbon. Due to a massive demand from consumers, hundreds of barrels have been sent around the world. Each voyage of Jefferson’s Ocean typically crosses the equator four times, visits five continents and over 30 ports of call.
Nose: Since Jefferson’s sources bourbon, the mash bill is unknown. However, the nose for this particular batch lines up with rye grain recipe bourbon with strong floral notes that balance with salted caramel.
Palate: sweetness of dried fruits comes through with milky coffee and bitter dark chocolate, some sea air saltiness as well. Very creamy.
Finish: Dark chocolate really appears as well as more cinnamon and vanilla.
