Pick up a bottle or two of Groth Reserve Cask and taste the one Jefferson’s Bourbon to rule them all.  
 
 
Jefferson’s was founded in 1997 by Trey Zoeller and his father Chet—a famed Bourbon historian who wrote the book on Kentucky distilleries. Yes, an actual book called “Bourbon in Kentucky: A History of Distilleries in Kentucky.” Heck, distilling is in their blood. In fact, eight generations ago, their super-great grandmother was arrested for the “production and sales of spirituous liquors” in 1799. Which probably makes her the coolest ancestor ever!  
 
The “official” story is that they named their Jefferson’s Bourbon after Thomas Jefferson because of “his curiosity and experimental spirit.” It likely didn’t hurt that Jefferson allegedly ran a still on his farm when he retired from public life… so did George Washington for that matter. They make a range of specialty Bourbons and Rye Whiskies—including a very interesting “Ocean Aged at Sea” product that get’s a lot of attention. In 2007 Jefferson’s was sold to Castle Brands as they build their own liquor empire portfolio of premium spirits. 
 
The first time you see the Jefferson's Groth Reserve Cask Bourbon label, you will ask the all-important question, “What the heck is a ‘Groth,’ anyway?” Seriously… “Groth" sounds like an orc-creature form a J. R. R. Tolkien novel, right? Well, it so happens that Groth is the name of a prominent winery in Napa Valley famous for its Cabernet Sauvignon. 
 
Jefferson's Groth Reserve Cask Bourbon is aged first in new toasted American oak—like any proper Bourbon should be. Then it is finished in French oak casks that were used—you guessed it—to mature that lovely Napa Valley Cabernet. The result? Jefferson's Groth Reserve Cask Bourbon tastes REALLY good… so smooth and flavorful that instead of its current “orc-ish” name it should be called something beautiful and “elf-sih”… something like Lady Arwen Sexy Hotness Elf-Bourbon or something. 
 
Or maybe not. We’ll keep working on it. In the meantime, don’t let the name stop you. Pick up a bottle or two of Groth Reserve Cask and taste the one Jefferson’s Bourbon to rule them all.

Groth Vineyards and Winery is located near the famous Robert Mondavi Winery in the little Napa Valley town of Oakville. That’s a nice coincidence, isn’t it. You know... getting your oak barrels from Oakville and all...

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

Jordan,
Definite carmel tones but hits mid tongue with smooth finish..

anonymous,
Has a strong grape flavor that comes through when mixed with water or ice. Good overall
Antti
Antti,
a very good, rich, extra-matured, bourbon with a birth of caramel corn & fruit; a life of spicy Cabernet, that leads to a spicy death of baked apples.

Pricey but SO good!

Can definitely taste the cab barrels on the finish. Still holds true to bourbon flavor, but finished with a smooth wine essence.
