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.

Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Ratings & Reviews
Austin
Austin,
always a great pour from Willett. Daily sipper for me.
 
Jim
Jim,
This 1.5 L bottle is such a treat. Not only looks great sitting out, but makes a wonderful noise every time you pour it. Great depth and darkness to its sweetness Makes both delightful Old Fashioneds and Manhattans.
 
Craig
Craig,
Should you buy this bottle? No. Should you drink this bottle if your father-in-law purchases it? Maybe. Nothing special here. While the bottle shape is unique that is about all that makes this a showpiece. The juice inside is mediocre at best.
 
John
John,
Nothing special. Flat and uninteresting.
 
Matt
Matt,
This is one of the worst bourbons I've ever tasted. Flat, metallic flavor that doesn't get any better no matter what you do to it. No character to speak of other than metal. It tastes extremely young as well. The tasting notes mentioned in every review were undetectable in my bottle. I'm willing to accept that maybe I received a bad bottle, but this stuff is so atrocious I'll never be buying another one to find out. It's unfortunate that such a wonderful and unique looking bottle is filled with such an unacceptable spirit.

Very smooth with a hint of XO cognac... one of the best sipping bourbons I've had in a long time.

Dawn,
This is the smoothest and most favorite....and the bottle is beautiful.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Initial nose notes of banana and cinnamon. Followed by heavy Spivey tasting notes as if this was a rye. But with smooth finish of a good bourbon.
 
Debbie
Debbie,
One of my top two favorites (Michter’s being the other) bourbons. A very smooth drinking experience with a little sweetness at the end.
 
James
James,
Ok. Too much like cut grass and not the sweetness I come to expect from a bourbon
