Yesterday I mentioned George Washington's history as a distiller but he wasn't the only historic figure to figure in the America's boozy past. In fact the history of bourbon making is so much a part of U.S. history that the Senate has declared September National Bourbon Heritage Month. Castle Brands
, takes this opportunity to remind us that they have two bourbons named after Thomas Jefferson and one for Sam Houston. The bourbons are all small batch bourbons. The Jefferson's bourbon is a very small batch bourbon with taste of vanilla and caramel. The Sam Houston has flavors of nutmeg, wood resin, corn mash, rye bread and dry cereal. The Jefferson's Reserve is a complex bourbon aged 15 years and has flavors of vanilla and caramel as well as hints of fruits such as date and orange. The Jefferson's Reserve sells for around $60.
