In March 2018, Jordan reviewed the single barrel version of Widow Jane 10 Year which was sourced exclusively from Kentucky and thought it was just average. Now over two and a half years later, the bourbon has transitioned to a batched product consisting of five barrels per batch and includes bourbons sourced from Kentucky, Tennessee, and Indiana. Overall I really enjoyed this pour, and found it nicely showing its age with a highlight on oak, possibly even hinting towards some whiskeys in the blend being older than 12 years. Despite this, it manages to strike a balance between the oak and other flavors, making this a reasonably accessible bourbon with a highlight on its higher age. I would definitely recommend picking up a bottle if you enjoy oak-forward, higher aged bourbons.
