    Woodford Reserve is a brand of Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey produced by Labrot & Graham distillery in Kentucky. The mashbill for Woodford Reserve features a high percentage of rye: 72% corn, 18% rye and 10% malt. Unusual also for being triple distilled and having the lowest proof upon entering the barrel where it matures for at least six years. A must have Kentucky bourbon. Makes a wonderful Old-Fashioned cocktail!

    Specifics:
    PROOF 90.4
    43.2% Vol

    Clearly as the bottle is empty. I love this stuff.
    "The nose is quite thick and creamy. There are notes of honey and spice, leather, a touch of cocoa, a little smoke, toasty oak and vanilla cream with a hint of butterscotch. The palate is thick and full. There are notes of espresso beans, winter spice, cereal sweetness, plenty of rye, ground ginger, almond oil, toasty oak and a little rum. The finish is long and mature with notes of cereals and toasty oaken spice." Well that's what I was told anyhow!!

    Had it for the first time in Vegas at Casa Fuente with an Opus X so.....obviously in that setting everything was awesome. Enjoyed it several time since and it's just a sweet and warm every time.

    Woodford is a solid bourbon for sure. When I first started drinking bourbon it was my "go to". I haven't had it in awhile so I guess I should pick up a bottle and give it another shot.

    This has been my go to for many years now. A full bourbon that is still somewhat affordable for me.

    My bourbon experience is limited to Maker's Mark, Bulliet and this one, but i can tell you right now this is my favorite. Super smooth, kind of velvety, very tasty, comes in a cool bottle.

    I know I'm in the minority, but i do not like it. It tastes (to me) like it was made with muddy water.

    I've had that. One of my three favorite bourbons. Great taste and goes down very smooth.

    I was surprised to find a different looking bottle of Woodford whilst out in Manchester, UK last week.

    I believe it's not new, but I've never seen it over here before. All the distinct flavours of Woodford but, you've guest it, a lot more smokey! :)
