Ray
Ray,
Excellent sipping bourbon. Smooth and full of flavor. I'll definitely buy it again.
 
Lisa
Lisa,
Very nice nose with just a hint of brown sugar and oak. Some nice spice and heat when tasted neat. A small splash of water really changes the profile up. I would buy again.
 
Maren
Maren,
I love this Bourbon. Its incredibly smooth and not terribly priced. This delicious Jefferson's bottle is my new favorite!
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Wow. What a good Bourbon. All the classic flavors I know and love with a lovely, sweet nose. Plenty of good oak/leather/tobacco chew on the palate without being overpowering... followed by a very crisp, slightly sweet finish. This was my first foray into Jefferson's but most certainly will not be my last.
 
Mike
Mike,
Enjoyed. Liked all flavors and great with my Cohiba
 
Judy
Judy,
Not "Very Special". I expected more. It was fine, but I gave it to a friend who appreciated this profile more. I love other Jefferson's bourbons, but this one felt very tobacco/flannel/leather/Stetson cologne/masculine in a way that I don't love to drink.

Edinson,
Definitely one of the best Bourbons i have had.

Judy
Judy,
It took a couple of tastes for me to get a handle on it. I love the Jefferson: this one was a bit metallic and might not be my personal favorite but I enjoyed trying it.

This Bourbon was the smoothest that I have tested yet. This is now my favorite Bourbon.
 
Charles
Charles,
Amazingly smooth yet not sweet. All too often the bourbons that are smooth seem too sweet for me. This on is a 45% , 90 proof so it is a bit less intense than many of the bourbons I drink, like Willet Reserve that come in at 115. Great sipping bourbon with just a touch of water to let it open up and let your pallet fully enjoy the taste. Wish they would put on the bottle the actual age of the bourbon rather than just Very Old. https://jeffersonsbourbon.com/jeffersons-very-small-batch
 
Matt
Matt,
One of my favorite bourbons. Super smooth, with just a touch of sweetness up front. It has a nice mouthfeel and texture. Not too sharp. The burn is appropriate and not too intense.
 
Gary
Gary,
Very smooth and well balanced one of my favorites
 
Travis
Travis,
This is good...real good. Complex flavors and has that ability to be sweet yet give a alcohol kick to boot. For the price is is definitely a top contender.
 
Tegan
Tegan,
I liked it
 
Greg
Greg,
I’m actually pretty disappointed with this bourbon after all the hype. It lacks the caramely sweetness I love in bourbon, has an odd grapefruit flavor on the tongue, and even more odd, a medicine flavor like some scotch. I don’t like this ... and that in itself is saying a lot!
 
John
John,
Might be my all around favorite bourbon. Very smooth, great mouthfeel, tons of depth
 
Steven
Steven,
Love this! Smooth and flavorful.
 
Ajay
Ajay,
Excellent Bourbon for the Price. Entry Level Top-Shelf Bourbon. 8.0/10 if I could give tenths of a point. For a true bourbon enthusiast this is an excellent go to. Before buying more expensive bourbon it’ would be best to understand what sets this one apart from it’s less sophisticated and less expensive counterparts.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Smooth, flavorful, delicious. Will definitely buy again!
 
JOSEPH
JOSEPH,
My daily drinker. Can't beat it at the price. almost as good as the Ocean without the story.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Very enjoyable, unfortunately it didn’t last long....... but that’s because it was enjoyable
 
Kent
Kent,
Nothing special
 
William
William,
The aroma of this bourbon takes me right into the rickhouse with that musty goodness. The bourbon itself is good, a bit thin, but worth it at the price.
 
Greg
Greg,
One of my favorites. Great balance of strength, smoothness and a semi-sweet finish.
 
Tyler
Tyler,
Smooth as can be. Slight orange taste and finish. Definitely a favorite.
 
Tom
Tom,
Butterscotch, vanilla and oak. Very smooth. Feels good in the mouth and better going down. Subtle but satisfying warmth lingers on the finish. A well crafted quality reserve that delivers well beyond it's price point. Straight up or rocks, this bourbon had me going back for "just one more" pour. Really good.
 
Adam
Adam,
Very nice and smooth bourbon

Pretty good bottle. Very smooth and nice flavors of vanilla and spices. I bought the NH barrel buy edition and was very impressed.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Smooth, smooth, smooth! A very pleasant flavor combination with buttery elements, vanilla and cinnamon yet somehow not too sweet or one dimensional. Did I mention that it's really smooth?
 
Conner
Conner,
I am not typically a bourbon guy, usually prefer my scotch. But this is making me reevaluate everything, very pleasantly spiced without being overbearing and the finish is so easy! Drinking it neat or with a couple stones and enjoying every drop!
 
Jeff
Jeff,
This is one of my favorites. I got it for Christmas and it was amazing. It got a lot of flavor and is a great relaxing sipping bourbon. Highly recommended.
 
Paul
Paul,
Very enjoyable and smooth.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
Dining a side by side comparison with Jefferson’s Ocean, and found the reserve has the same base notes but the upper flavor and nose are very different. Listening to the interview with Trey Zoeller, saying that you can taste the Ocean in East barrel, I though Ya, right... however it has a very unique taste. Jefferson reserve is an amazing bourbon and is amazingly smooth. I will always have one in my collection.
 
Scott
Scott,
This is a great little after work and relax drink . It has a slight bite at the beginning but finished smooth . Thr flavor spiral is right on point and I highly enjoyed this .
 
Erik
Erik,
This is one of the best bourbon's I have ever had. Smooth... very smooth, no after bit.. not over bearing...
 
Scott
Scott,
I like it ... I dont love it but I like it . It's great neat and the flavor notes are pretty spot on you can definitely taste the butterscotch overtones and the after burn isnt bad at all ( over a few rocks takes that burn right away ). Its a nice little sipper after a long day at work . I'm happy i took the shot and bought this bottle .

Impressive and flavorful with just the right amount of burn.
 
William
William,
First time drink of the bottle was very tinny, but since, I've not noticed that at all. It is nice neat and brings a little heat at the end. It wil stay in my bar.
 
Sean

Nice flavor, easy to drink.
 
Richard
Richard,
Very smooth taste, great just straight up
 
Alex
Alex,
Forever a favorite. Something everyone can enjoy. It’s strong enough to satisfy those who crave a more intense flavor, but the vanilla and butterscotch keeps it from overpowering the more sensitive palates
 
JAMES
JAMES,
Solid bourbon smell, with a hint of molasses. Slightly over proof but very smooth, best sipped neat.
 
Ryan

Extremely smooth and simple taste, perfect for an Old Fashioned.

This is a high quality, old, and delicious bourbon. You can taste the sophistication in the aging and get a variety of flavors followed by a slow burn and a smooth finish. It is excellent and finds itself in my regular rotation.

Jernique
Jernique,
Love this. Very smooth and stiff. It tastes great neat or on the rocks. I am becoming a lover of the Jeffersons brand. Try some of the the other small batch and I loved that as well.
 
Charlie

Nice bourbon. Has almost a floral taste to it. Smooth and sweet.
 
Brian
Brian,
I'm new to whiskey but have been tasting for 6 months. I'm being open minded that I may be more a rum person, but I like smoke. I find this of quality but I can't pick out many flavors. Larceny seems smoother. Maybe if I allow this to oxygenate for a bit the flavors may develop more.
