WOODFORD RESERVE BOURBON
Producer/Distillery: Brown-Forman Corporation
Region: Lexington-Fayette, KY
Woodford Reserve is an award-winning bourbon whiskey that hails from the hills of Kentucky. The Woodford Reserve Distillery dates back to 1812, which means it’s been producing sweet, smooth bourbon for over 200 years. Every bottle of Woodford Reserve is 90 proof, making this a bourbon that truly packs a punch. This bourbon comes from one of the smallest distilleries in Kentucky, where master distillers have perfected the recipe over the centuries. Woodford Reserve is made with fermented corn, rye and malt, and it’s triple distilled in pot and column stills. Finally, it’s aged in custom-charred, white oak barrels in a heat-cycled warehouse. Woodford Reserve ages for at least six years before it’s bottled, giving it plenty of character and rich tasting notes. Every bottle of Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey boasts over 200 tasting notes. When you take a sip, you’ll notice everything from wood to spice to fruity, floral notes. The nose features dried fruit with hints of citrus, as well as cocoa and tobacco notes. Then comes the full range of rich, well-rounded flavors, including cinnamon, caramel and spiced citrus. This bourbon has a long, silky finish that’s sure to satisfy.
