It was surprising to learn about the background of this bourbon, that it was actually inspired by a character in a show; J.R. Ewing was the show’s infamous character and iconic Texas tycoon who’s drink of choice was a superb quality bourbon.
Dallas’ legendary character J.R. Ewing; a ruthless and egotistical Texas oil baron with discerning taste, J.R. would no doubt have been pleased to see his own notorious name signed on the bottle of this well-crafted bourbon whiskey.
Bottle of the bourbon features a screen-printed image of the Southfork Ranch - home of the J.R. - which can be seen through the front of this elegant bottle.
If you are curious about the drink before you try it - the nose is classic and slightly fruity, with notes of vanilla, oak sweetness and a touch of orange. The taste is surprisingly mild, yet crisp, and exhibits a lightly spicy/honey taste that lingers on the palate.
