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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Smooth, easily drinkable, but not remarkable enough to be a mainstay in my collection
