Jefferson's Bourbon Tiered Flight

It's been over a month since I've put up a review.  I had this great idea for doing a Jefferson's flight and using the characters from the Jefferson's for the grade, and then Sherman Helmsley died on the same night that I was searching for images from the show.  I feel that we've moved past the too soon stage.

The grades:

A Florence: Pretty much exists to piss me off, like Woodford Reserve Double Oak 

A Mister Bentley, fun to have around, but you may not be inviting him back.  Like Maker's 46.

A George: Costs too much, but I still don't regret it, like Colonel EH Taylor.

A Weezie: My wife tells me how her brother was drawn to Weezie as a kid and didn't understand why.  There is a lot going on with a Weezie, you just might not understand it, like Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit.

A Tom Willis: Smooth as they come.  Like Pappy Van Winkle.

Now to the bourbon!

Jefferson's Straight Kentucky Bourbon: This is the "entry" level bourbon from Jefferson's.  Tastes great, but not quite worth $30.  I give it a Mister Bentley.

Jefferson's Reserve: I'll have to get back to you on that one.  Don't currently have it.

Jefferson's Presidential Select 17 Year Old: If there was ever going to be a Tom Willis, this is it.  You drop a dime on it and say money well spent.  (It is the old release, if you ever see it buy it, as good a bourbon as you'll have.)

Jefferson's Presidential Select 18 Year Old: I have to give it a George.  It's pretty much the same as the 17, but slightly rougher with more bite.  Still worth it.

Nothing like a set of bourbon reviews without the words, oak, cinnamon, vanilla, spices.
