Jacob’s Pardon Whiskey
The first release of Jacob’s Pardon Small Batch is
labeled “Recipe No. 1” and combines some of that 15 year old MGP light whiskey
with 8 year old whiskey from Tennessee. It’s bottled at a gentler proof of
48.6% ABV and, because the Tennessee whiskey was aged in new charred oak
barrels, has deeper notes of spice and nuts. There are 14,898 bottles rolling
out in this initial batch, which was blended by spirits expert Paul Pacult.
Brothers. Bootleggers. Legends. Nearly a century ago,
Jacob and Abner Taub crafted and bootlegged their own whiskey during
Prohibition to support their family. Then one fateful winter night in 1929,
their world came crashing down during a sting that would land the brothers
behind bars. Six long years later, Franklin D. Roosevelt pardoned the Taub
brothers. They were able to reignite their family business with their brother
Martin and help launch Baltimore Club Whiskey. This would set into motion a
family tradition that would span generations. The brothers served their time,
and now, you can spend time enjoying Jacobs Pardon, a fine American whiskey
that pays homage to their rebellious roots. Its complex, smooth, timeless, and
frankly, a little liberating. It would be a crime not to enjoy it.
Rich gold, amber with flawless clarity.
Rich aromas of buttered sweet corn, brown sugar and espresso.
Tangy taste profile that’s deep in spice-driven baked ham, vanilla bean, and
cinnamon bun flavors.
Long, pleasant sweetness with nuances of biscuit, wood and grain.
