The Jefferson Wood Experiment 5 pack is the perfect gift for any Bourbon lover

Looking for that special standout gift for the whiskey lover in your life? Check out the Jefferson Wood Experiment. jeff-wood1

Retailing at about $100, it’s no more financially damaging than a bottle of good Scotch, but much more memorable.

Each pack contains five 200 ml bottles of a different range or style of barrel cooperage. (Right off the bat, that’s a full liter of specialty whiskey, versus the standard 750ml bottle. But the definitive qualifier here is not the quantity, but the quality.)

The inspiration behind Jefferson’s Wood Experiment Collection came from spending time in a wine cooperage in Missouri. Wine cooperages are different than what you find in Kentucky as they have different treating processes which are more focused on toasting, slow cooking, and searing to bring different flavors to the forefront.

It was at this point that the Jefferson team asked, “How could we change up what the final flavors of the bourbon are after we mature it in typical bourbon barrels?”

They started with their 4-year-old bourbon that had been aged in new charred white oak barrels and finished it in 13 different environments/vessels. There were many combinations with which to experiment–new bourbon barrels, new wine barrels, wine barrel heads on a new bourbon barrel, inserting oak staves that have been seared, or oak cubes that have been slow cooked, etc.

jeff-wood2Over a period of 32 months, they charted the characteristics of each experiment monthly and analyzed how the different treatments affected the outcome of the final whiskey.

Jefferson decided to bottle up five of these experiments into 200 milliliter samples so you can see for yourself how small changes can make a vast difference.

This 2016 kit consists of five bottles, with a random selection from each of the 13 different available experiments in each package.

For those who have been curious about how much a particular oak barrel can season the flavor of a whiskey, ever thought of hosting their own bourbon tasting, or just appreciate the unique creativity involved in the whiskey making process, this is an ideal opportunity.

Act now, though! Jefferson’s Wood Experiment sampler is in high demand, but short quantity, for the holidays.
