From the Big Daddy of Bourbon and Rye Bottling.
 
The Willett Distilling Company or Kentucky Bourbon Distillers, as it is also known, is a small, family-owned company that markets Bourbon and Rye Whiskey. They’re located in Bardstown, Kentucky. As a relatively large independent bottling company, they’re called the big daddy of Bourbon and Rye Bottling.
 
The company wasn’t actually operating as a distillery from 1980 to 2012, when they re-established the distilling process using both column and pot stills. So far they’ve been using Whiskey distilled elsewhere to make their products, and it will be a few more years before they can use their own distillates because of the necessary ageing process.
 
Willett Pot Still Reserve Bourbon was introduced in 2008 and is a hand-selected, limited x Kentucky straight Bourbon, aged 8-10 years and bottled at 47% ABV. It comes in one of the coolest decanters on the market.

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Willett Pot Still Reserve and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Sean,
The only reason I don’t rate this 10 stars is because I don’t know if there is anything else out there that is better. Willett was everything you want and more. Pleasing to the nose and smooth on the pallet. It’s flavor spiral is right on and will leave you wanting more, so be careful. Will buy multiples of this.
 
Charles
Charles,
Nearest bottle in town and the contents do not disappoint. Has an oakey taste, which I’m fond of. Finish is medium and overall a damned good bourbon.

I bought it intending to make an oil lamp from the bottle. What a pleasant surprise to find that the bottle is bought for its shape held such fantastic bourbon. It’s become a staple for social functions among my friends. I can’t recommend this enough.

It is a very good, balanced, Kentucky straight Bourbon, with a delicate birth & woody life that lead to a spicy death.

Nate
Nate,
if only.... I live in a small market so I've only had a small tasting. would love to have it featured all the time in my home bar!
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Vanilla at the front of the tongue. Smoky and hot finish. Different. Not bad, just different. Some notes are too mild and I think the heat is too strong. Definitely worth having because it is different from other bourbon flavor profiles, bit I would have to be in the mood for it to drink it.
 
Rhonda
Rhonda,
Top of my list
 
Gary

Not bad
 
Rick
Rick,
Very smooth with a lot of flavor. I'm a big scotch guy, but love this bourbon.
 
Steven
Steven,
Some junk drifting around in the tube. I don't know if that's normal but I assumed that anything steeped in that much alcohol was safe to drink. Tasted strong and the alcohol was a little overpowering to the flavour.
 
Maurizio
Maurizio,
Warm but rough. Plenty of oak and with a little bitterness in the finish.
 
Aleksandr
Aleksandr,
Hot
 
Chip
Chip,
Awful
 
Nolan
Nolan,
Smooth even when consumed neat. Sweet caramel and vanilla. Spice toward the end. DELICIOUS!
 
Martin
Martin,
Great vanilla. A bit thin. Most of the flavors are delicious but too light. I would feel justified pay $50 for a bottle.
 
William
William,
Smooth, easily drinkable, but not remarkable enough to be a mainstay in my collection
