  1. Mr.Sandwich did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The taste from batch to batch is subject to minimal fluctuations.
    • Nose
      Dries dry, but not as dry as on the palate. Dried fruits, toasted oak, honey, mint, some tobacco and leather.
    • Taste
      Very dry and oak, but in a pleasant way. Strong he comes therefore probably a high rye content is used here. Also, aromas of cocoa and leather are noticeable. Hardly sweet and the fruitiness is only slight to feel.
    • Finish
      The medium - long finish is mild - spicy with dry wood.

  2. drkrylov scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    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.

    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.
