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.

Not bad
Rick
Very smooth with a lot of flavor. I'm a big scotch guy, but love this bourbon.
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
Warm but rough. Plenty of oak and with a little bitterness in the finish.
Aleksandr
Hot
Chip
Awful
Nolan
Smooth even when consumed neat. Sweet caramel and vanilla. Spice toward the end. DELICIOUS!
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
Smooth, easily drinkable, but not remarkable enough to be a mainstay in my collection
