Jefferson’s Bourbon, a brand of Pernod Ricard USA, announced the launch of its latest expression: Ocean Aged at Sea Rye. The newest addition to the popular Jefferson’s Ocean family, marks Jefferson’s inaugural exploration at sea with rye whiskey, it says. The liquid is a fully mature rye whiskey that was double-barreled (75% in char 3 barrels and 25% in toasted barrels). It was then placed on ships and traveled through ports around the world as part of the unique finishing technique for which the Ocean series is known, the company says. Jefferson’s Ocean Aged at Sea Rye is a rye balanced by caramelization that comes specifically from the sea-aging process, it notes. The combination of the new char 3 barrels and new toasted barrels adds a flavorful depth of marshmallow and toffee on the nose and palate with rich notes of leather and tobacco and a long finish of baking spices that are kissed with a touch of sea salt, it adds. Packaged in 750-ml bottles, the 48% ABV Jefferson’s Ocean Aged at Sea Rye is available to purchase at local retailers, bars and restaurants across the United States for a suggested retail price of $79.99.
