    So i was back in the old country... My hometown of Brooklyn NY. So i decided to check out Cocao Prieto (in Redhook Brooklyn), the distillery that produces Widow Jane Whiskey. A great place. We tried chocolate that they also make here and whiskey. Pure winning! Also learned that there original production of Widow Jane was an 8 yr, but they have made it a 10 year age statement now. So of course now i have to find an 8 yr bottle to make a comparison to the 10 yr bottle i purchased.

    I can say that the landscape of Redhook Brooklyn has changed dramatically. It's now loaded with trendy little hangouts and smaller breweries, hipster spots and a another distillery. I can tell you growing up in Bklyn that going to Redhook wasn't all that desirable. But hay now they have bad ass Whiskey Distillery and a Whole Foods. Got to love gentrification...

    As some of you have already had Widow Jane, i dont need to explain how good their bourbon is, so just continue to find it and enjoy...
