As a result of a consistent opening and closing of the wood grain in the barrels and the normal rocking of the ship, Jefferson’s OCEAN Voyage 9 took on salty, caramel notes and subtle charcoal and smoke flavors due to fact that more of the bourbon came in contact with the interior surface of each barrel. Because of the departure date of the Tamerlane, most of the voyage was exposed to Fall and Spring weather patterns and avoided a good deal of the more dramatic Summer-Winter climate changes. As a result, contact with the wood allowed the staves to act as a filter taking out the stringencies of the alcohol, making a for an extremely smooth and rich finish.
