Jefferson's Reserve.

I am always on the lookout for something unusual in the bourbon-department to buy for Thud.  I think this particular bottle of Jefferson's Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey fits the bill.
Jefferson's Reserve specialise in small, one-off batches of bourbon whiskey, or "very uncommon" and "ridiculously small batches" as the distillery likes to put it.  This particular small batch was finished off in retired French oak barrels that once held Groth Vineyards & Winery Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.  I thought this would be a fun bourbon for him to try because of Thud's, and the bourbon's, connection to the Napa Valley.
I hope he likes it.

VG: My son loves bourbon; I'll have too see if I can find this.
Have a smashingly great visit.

I'm pretty sure I will like it.

VG: I found this bourbon today, but at $79 I'll wait until it goes on the 15% sale.

NHW: Glad you found it. I found it in a local supermarket, of all places, for about $10 more than that.

Thud: Hope you do.

Your blog always makes me feel like I should drink more than I do. Jefferson's sounds like a great company.

Phlegmmy: Might sound good in theory, but it's still alcohol - and it's loaded with calories ;)
