    The nose on this one is quite a treat as it is but once you add some drops of water, put a lid on your dram and let it sit for some minutes the nose gets truly astonishing. With your first sip you immediately get hit by the sweetness, followed by a spicy floral bouquet. There`s also a lot of rye coming through and believe me, those flavors are here to stay... A full bodied bourbon with a long lasting rewarding finish. What makes this even more of an outstanding product is the fact that it`s only bottled at 43.2% and hence it packs all of those flavours.

    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.

    Woodford Reserve isn`t manufactured, it`s hand crafted in small batches. This artisinal process allows us to craft it at all five sources of bourbon flavor giving it its distinct taste and crisp, clean finish.
