Whisky Reviews for Woodford Reserve Distiller's Select

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.25 points

  1. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Smooth and sweet. Perhaps too sweet and syrupy as these aspects dominate the nose and palate. Great if you`re in the mood for this profile, but lacking in depth and complexity.

    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.

     Probably the best Bourbon
    • Nose
      Cigar-boxes. Hint of charcoal.
    • Taste
      Very firm. Full of flavours, tightly combined. Whole almonds, marzipan.
    • Finish
      Very long. Flowery. Violets.
