Willett Pot Still Reserve

Willett Pot Still Reserve

The first thing to know about this bourbon is that Jason purchased it mostly based on the wicked cool bottle. The bottle alone makes this a must own bourbon for your collection. We think the increased price can easily be justified to your wives or friends as “but I’m going to use the bottle over and over!” Call us shallow or simple, if you will, we scored an incredible bourbon and justified it to ourselves at the very least. The bottle tested in this tasting was 124/272 in batch #9628 and cost $62 for 750ml.  94 proof (47%)

Tasting was done straight up.

Rater Comments
Jason Awesome bottle that can be saved as a decanter. Better with ice to remove some of the alcohol burn and bring out the flavor. Great full taste.
Tripp Cool bottle with exceptional whiskey. Absolutely worth the splurge of money and a great addition to any collection. Very smooth considering the high proof and always enjoyable. One of my favorites so far.
