The art of making fine bourbon first took place on the site of the Woodford Reserve Distillery, a National Historic Landmark, in 1812. The mashbill for Woodford Reserve features a high percentage of rye, resulting in glorious spice: 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! They have a list of whiskey awards under their belts, making this a stand out bourbon.
Subtle spices warm the palate only for the honey to calm things down again. Sweetcorn, and brilliant, toasty brown-sugared depth.The oak adds dryness to the finish. Stunningly complex.
