RED HOOK, BROOKLYN, NY – After selling through its initial, limited run of product in 48 hours, Widow Jane Distillery announces the expanded release of Decadence, Widow Jane’s signature 10-year bourbon, blended in small batches and finished in American oak barrels that held Upstate New York’s Crown Maple artisan maple syrup. Crown Maple makes its home in the Hudson Valley, a short drive from the legendary Rosendale Mines where Widow Jane harvests limestone-rich water to proof its whiskies.
The maple syrup barrel finish delivers a rich, creamy-smooth and slightly sweet mouthful of whiskey that includes a faint maple note.
Recommended serves include: Neat, over one rock, or in an Old Fashioned, or in a Toddy.
By the numbers: Widow Jane Decadence is bottled at 45.5% ABV (91 proof); SRP $79.99.
Nose: Sugared pecans, maple, birch beer, charred oak
Palate: Vanilla, burnt sugar, cinnamon, bark
Finish: Brown sugar, shortbread, mellow tobacco, old whiskey; delivers a slightly sweet, creamy-rich mouthfeel and lingering finish
“Richness is a quality that most people associate with Widow Jane bourbon. But with Decadence we really enhanced that particular characteristic,” said Lisa Wicker, Widow Jane President and Head Distiller & Blender. “We’ve provided whiskey for their bourbon barrel aged maple syrup since 2014. This time their maple syrup is complementing our beautiful bourbon just as our bourbon compliments their beautiful maple syrup.”
Each batch release of Widow Jane Decadence represents around 550 cases (3300 bottles). The fall and winter 2020 batches will be available in AZ, CA, CO, FL, MA, NJ, NY, SC, TX beginning in October, 2020.
