WIDOW JANE 4 ans Wapsie Valley 50/50 LMDW Cellar Book 45,5%
Bourbon, United States / New York, 35cl, Ref: 53730
Produced from a very old, protein-rich maize (70%), 15% malted barley and 15% rye, this bottling was distilled at 218 Conover street in Brooklyn, at the Widow Jane distillery headquarters, four years ago. With incredible depth and complexity and a very strong personality, it is full of all the mysteries that characterize any great bourbon. Moments of pure poetry, the presence with which the aromatic palette climbs ever higher and the sumptuous cameo of autumnal flavours offered on the palate are a perfect example.
Profile: the intense initial nose is above all characterized by a note of varnish and abundant fruits (Mirabelle plum, redcurrant, stewed apple). It develops into a very distinguished woody register, before becoming exotic (mango). The palate is both chocolatey and fruity. From autumnal colours to honeyed notes, it becomes increasingly generous (chestnut soup).

- Appearance : copper with glints of mahogany.
- Nose : intense, deep. On the initial nose, a note of varnish which brings in its wake a whole raft of fruits - Mirabelle plum, redcurrant, stewed apple, apricot and orange - raises the aromatic palette up and allows a glimpse of a woody landscape composed solely of noble essences (oak, cedar, chestnut tree). Truly original, it develops into notes of cocoa powder, exotic fruit (banana, mango) and polish (shoe polish, incense). Its oxidative character evokes a delicately rancio and venerable Banyuls.
- Palate : energetic, distinguished. Supported by notes of chocolate and fruit (cherry, orange zest), the attack has an incredible delicate mouthfeel. On the mid-palate, smooth, fruity tannins flood the palate, wonderfully highlighting the rye’s influence. On a chromatic front, its very autumnal tones (brown, black, orange, red) are extremely beautiful. Even the honeys it reveals are powerful and ambercoloured (heather, pine). And yet it is incredibly fresh!
- Overall : long, generous. A bed of leaves covers the ground and reminds us that October is well under way. Radiant sunshine caresses freshly fallen chestnuts - authentic amber treasures. All that remains is to collect them, and there are many to be found. The retro-nasal olfaction invites us to enjoy a delicious chestnut soup. The empty glass is then camphoric, powdery (cocoa) and cereal-centered (maize, rye).
