A Bourbon aged in white oak with charred oak chips in the cask to take wood contact to the extreme.

John Sharp and his son Jimmy ran a business in Montgomery, Alabama. But that business required a lot of travel. When Jimmy’s daughter Lily was born in 2014, they knew they had to start something different. They founded the John Emerald Distilling Company — the first legal distillery in Alabama since Prohibition — in the tiny town of Opelika and named it after John’s father. They make a Rum, Gin, Vodka, Whiskey, and their signature Alabama Single Malt Whiskey.

John Emerald Purveyor’s Series Double Wood Bourbon follows in the spirit of the Purveyor’s Series by adding wood chips into the barrel during aging. In this case it is a match-up of white oak casks and charred white oak chips to greatly increase the wood contact and accelerate aging. At 43% ABV, the essence of wood permeates the Spirit and brings smoothness.

Use for mixed drinks. Nothing to speak of. Look elsewhere
 
Grant

Not terribly flavorful. Left a bit to be desired, in my opinion.
 
Charles

Not as flavorful as I prefer my bourbons.
 
Richard
Richard,
Daily drink definite. Will empty quickly.
 
James
James,
Flavor was too light. tasted like it needed fuller flavor
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Smoky and tasty, a little bit of heat. Not bad for the price. A good sipper, not the best mixer.
 
Drew
Drew,
Wants to act like an irish whiskey (which my wife loves) or a Jack Daniels Rye (which I love). So...we love it!
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
I am really enjoying this bourbon. Easy to enjoy on the rocks and the extra oak flavor makes for a really good old fashioned. I will definitely purchase this again.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Rich and enjoyable. Easy to drink straight up, with enough character to make you pause and enjoy the experience. A wonderful surprise, and such a deal.
 
Greg
Greg,
I love oak. But for the first time in my life I think I've found a bourbon that is a little too oakey for me.
 
Jay
Jay,
This is a new bourbon for me. I usually use Makers Mark for mixing with ginger etc., Woodford Reserve and Blanton’s are 2 of my go to for on the rocks or neat. After my first taste of John Emerald’s Purveyor’s Series, it will become a regular in my personal Top-Shelve Bar.
 
Jobe
Jobe,
Terribly disappointing. Awful stench and horrible aftertaste.
 
Wes
Wes,
If you like a very smoky, woody oak flavor this is for you. If not...stay away.
 
Kaden
Kaden,
Definitely needs a cut of water. Other than that, its pretty good for the price. Spicy at the start oaky finish towards the end
 
Gregory
Gregory,
Very smooth whiskey, pleasant easy drinking. I like it a lot. In regards to the world of Bourbon it is lacking the heavier character and complexity of a great bourbon. But in the general world of whiskys it is a really good pour. Should be especially appealing to people who like a lighter whiskey. For what it is I highly recommend it.
 
Terry
Terry,
Nicely surprised. Neat was a little rough. Little water opened it up. On the rocks I got a bit of smoke on the nose. Nice carmel and a bit spice.

David
David,
Wow what a surprise. Got it as my quarterly bottle with little expectation. Hit my taste profile square on the head. Great balanced flavor and extremely smooth. Perfect for sipping on the rocks or in your favorite cocktail. Makes a great sour with my fresh key limes.
 
Kay
Kay,
Drinking this, you'd think it's much more expensive than it is. I honestly wasn't expecting much, but was surprisingly impressed! It's rich with everything you like about bourbon while adding layers of flavor from the different kinds of wood. It has a rich mouthfeel with clear flavors of corn and caramel. The sweetness is balanced by the toasty notes and tannins from the wood. You can taste how each type of wood is imparting different flavors into the bourbon. This was really interesting. My scotches haven't been opened since I tried this bottle. It's been my "go to" drink after dinner.

Vanilla flavour and very pleasing to the palate. Excellent either Davidoff Tampa cigar!!
 
David
David,
Caramel Bomb! Flaviar tasting notes are correct but this is a little too sweet and too one dimensional. Nice long but light finish and very sweet. This is more of a dessert sipper.
 
David
David,
Very smooth and warm. Taste like a cool fall night.
 
Ethan
Ethan,
Like a lot of the reviews state - great sipper. Try neat first and then with a dash of water if you want an extremely smooth dram. When sipped neat, the nose of this whiskey is incredible. Definitely a result of the toasted oak. I’m a fan and will buy again.

Fantastic sip, enjoyed every drink and could sit there and smell this for hours. This is most definitely a dessert drink.
 
Sean
Sean,
On the nose, I get charcoal fuel (but I also have a pretty banged up snout). But that doesn't play into how nice this is. This is an easy sipper... smooth and mellow. I get a sweet corn and caramel, with a hint of vanilla and char. Definitely enjoying this and will look to purchase more.
