Jefferson's Chef Collaboration
Distillery: Castle Brands . New York, NY
Age: 8 - 12 YR
Nose: Very nice and light but at the same time has lots of explosive rye spice.
Palate: Rye notes that you get from the nose and then rises into the bourbon spectrum with a very well balanced oak and cherry flavor.
Color: Light Amber
Notes: Many of you have asked us to review Jefferson’s Chef’s Collaboration, the latest joint venture from Jefferson’s Trey Zoeller and the famed Louisville Chef Edward Lee. According to the Jeffersonsbourbon.com website, “the Chef’s Collaboration developed after a late night spent tasting some of chef Edward Lee’s culinary creations led Trey to the idea that someone should blend a bourbon that would pair well with the bold flavors in chef Lee’s cookbook and other modern cuisine. Without hesitation, Trey and Ed set forth. The result is a blend with a spicy upfront and a fruity finish, enhanced by the addition of rye whiskey into the mix. Perfect with meals, for mixing cocktails or simply drinking neat.”
