Been wanting to try this - nice smooth taste to start.
Jefferson's Ocean Aged at Sea Bourbon
Bourbon /45% ABV / Kentucky, United States
- Kentucky, United States
This limited edition small batch Kentucky Bourbon is aged in American oak for around 8 years on land, placed on a ship and allowed to rest for 5 to 10 months at sea. The rolling waves, temperature swings and barometric fluctuations extract more wood tannins from the oak, rendering aromas of vanilla, caramel and burnt matches.View all products by Jefferson'sCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

The bourbon is fantastic.
Fantastic bourbon. Great for sipping. Initially a tad sweet but has a nice spice to it. Definitely recommend
I understand the novelty, but the batch j tried really was not good. Jefferson’s is very overpriced for what it is. Would not recommend.

I'm not a bourbon snob, but I do have some freinds who brag on their 'rare and high end' collections. But somehow they always end up here drinking my ocean cask... There is not wrong way to drink / mix this. Light with ginger ale, heavy with cokeand a lime, straight, on the rocks, etc. I just bought the last 4 in our city's ABC inventory, in am NOT taking a chance on running out..

One of my favorites. The aging at sea gives this bourbon a slightly salty undertone. It's very smooth with a lot of caramel and almost an almond note.
TOTAL SURPRISE! This was a gift and I was a tad skeptical that the whole aged at sea thing was just a gimmick and a way for Jeffersons to mark up its std whiskey by nearly 100%. IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY. Very smooth and full of flavors. I prefer my whiskey on the rocks, but this one demands to be enjoyed neat. If I was Jeff Bezos, I would bathe in this delicious spirit.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
