Jefferson’s Bourbon

I chanced across this new item at my off-licence and gave it an enthusiastic go, given the limited selection of bourbons usually on offer there. It is a blend, typically not my usual preference especially for Scotches, not on the grounds of snobbery (blends have 90% of the market and there are superb blends), but because I appreciate the distinctiveness (terroir) of single malts. Anyway, Jefferson’s seems to fare pretty well according to several prominent online review sites. It is indeed pretty good but for the added price ($20) over the lower end stalwart bourbons (e.g. Bulleit, NOT Jack and Jim) I don’t really feel it’s worth it given the excellent non-blended bourbons available at this price.
