The mashbill for Woodford Reserve features 72% corn, 18% rye and 10% malt
A favourite here at DC, this bourbon is 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!
Nose: Quite thick and creamy. There are notes of honey and spice, leather, a touch of cocoa, a little smoke, toasty oak and vanilla cream with a hint of butterscotch.
Palate: thick and full. There are notes of espresso beans, winter spice, cereal sweetness, plenty of rye, ground ginger, almond oil, toasty oak and a little rum.
Finish: Long and mature with notes of cereals and toasty oaken spice.
