Woodford Reserve is a sour mash straight bourbon made on Kentucky's oldest distillery site. The Distillery was established circa 1812 and is a National Historic Landmark in the bluegrass region of central Kentucky. Over 200 years of bourbon knowledge has gone into the making of this award-winning spirit. It is the only bourbon which is triple distilled in copper pot stills, the time-honoured method of production. It is then aged in new charred American oak barrels in the stone ageing warehouses alongside Glenn's Creek.
Heavy nose with rich dried fruit, hints of mint and oranges covered with a dusting of cocoa. Faint vanilla and tobacco spice.
Taste - rich, chewy, rounded and smooth, with complex citrus, cinnamon and cocoa. Toffee, caramel, chocolate and spice notes abound.
Silky smooth finish, almost creamy at first with a long, warm satisfying tail.
ABV = 43.2%.
