Widow Jane Releases 10 Year-Old Bourbon, Decadence

After selling through its initial, limited run of product, Widow Jane Distillery today announced an expanded release of Decadence, the distillery’s 10-year bourbon.

Widow Jane Decadence is a blended bourbon finished in American oak barrels that previously held Upstate New York’s Crown Maple maple syrup.The maple syrup barrel finish delivers a creamy-smooth and slightly sweet mouthful of whiskey, the company reports, including a faint maple note. On the nose, Decadence displays sugared pecans, maple, birch beer and charred oak, before a palate of vanilla, burnt sugar, cinnamon and bark. The finish is of brown sugar, shortbread, mellow tobacco and old whiskey, the company says.

“Richness is a quality that most people associate with Widow Jane bourbon. But with Decadence, we really enhanced that particular characteristic,” says Lisa Wicker, Widow Jane president and head distiller/blender. “We’ve provided whiskey for Crown Maple’s 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 Bourbon represents around 550 cases (3300 bottles). The fall and winter 2020 batches will be available in AZ, CA, CO, FL, MA, NJ, NY, SC and TX, beginning this month.Widow Jane Decadence is bottled at 45.5% ABV (91 proof). The suggested retail price is $79.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
