Introducing Jefferson’s OCEAN Aged at Sea® Voyage 29 Wheated, the third wheated bourbon and newest expression in the Jefferson’s OCEAN: Aged at Sea collection.
The vessel carrying casks of Jefferson’s OCEAN Wheated Voyage 29 was first docked in the Port of Savannah, right in the channel that funnels directly into the Atlantic Ocean. Per the brand, the ship avoided a tropical storm southeast of Bermuda that gently agitated cargo before heading through the Panama Canal. From there, the casks rounded Australia and traveled into the Indian Ocean.
As the ship traveled north to Singapore, high wind and rough seas moderated below the equator, giving way to long passages of open ocean and frequent stops in China, Korea, and Japan. Even with rough seas and tropical storms, the barrels of wheated bourbon aboard the ship rested quietly in the relatively calm coastal waters before heading out into the north Pacific and crossing to the west coast of America where air temperatures dropped to the mid 50’s, the lowest it got the entire trip.
Per the brand, atypical from other Ocean Voyage expressions, the wheated bourbon’s inherent softer style allows more pronounced vanilla and caramel notes that the Aged at Sea process (changes in air temperatures and sea conditions) delivers.
