Interesting fact… Woodford Reserve Kentucky Bourbon whiskey spells its name whiskey as it originates in America. Had it been produced in Scotland its name would be Woodford Reserve Kentucky Bourbon whisky, instead of whiskey.
The nose is 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. The palate is 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. The finish is long and mature with notes of cereals and toasty oaken spice.
I like this with a couple of ice cubes (no more or you ruin it!) and like to sip it slowly. I lived in Kentucky and this stuff is like nectar! lovely stuff.
Lovely, it almost feels like an Angel urinating down your throat, mellow yet full of flavour and a noticable absence of heat on the way down and unlike most Bourbons it's also not throaty at all, if a premium Bourbon is your thing, then this is for you, Oh, and if you're rich enough, contact the company as they also do bespoke blends that are different from the Distiller's Select.
I was introduced to Woodford Reserve while at the K.Derby 6 years ago. My father was a Old Grand Dad man and before he passed away the ultimate intro to Woodford, he said he never knew Bourbon tastes so good on the rocks. My Favorite as well as other Bourbon drinkers I turned it onto.
For the money, the best bourbon you can buy.
My Dad couldn't say enough about this s**t ;)
Really enjoyable when sipped neat, Butterscotch and smoothness comes through.
I can't rate this bourbon highly enough. It is sweet, gently on the palate and throat with practically no alcohol burn as it slides gently down. It's almost like the creme caramel of whiskeys, and if you've never tried it - treat yourself! Oh, and as a little extra to make you (or the person you're gifting it to) feel special, you can even register your bottle with the distillery.
The best bourbon !!!
Reall, I have yet to try a better Bourbon. This has smoothness, taste, bite and class. Highly rated.
I was a bit of a bourbon novice when I came onto this site and the first bottle I bought was Woodford reserve, based on the recommendations. They are all right, this is a wonderful bourbon, especially if like me, you are just starting to get a taste for the finer tipples that are out there
Woodford and Pappy van Winkle are the best-bourbons you can have!!
try and fly away on the green grass of beautiful kentucky11
I really liked this after trying gentleman jack and buffalo trace. Just seemed that slightly higher quality to me! Very good bourbon IMHO
Now I know what my grandfather would call "sippin whiskey" is. You can do a shot of any whiskey but this stuff you want to savor...
Despite being a high rye bourbon, the spice wasn't very forward. I found it all rather rough on the back of the throat, too. I only have the sample, and perhaps what I ate earlier this evening is affecting the taste, but I think this quite inferior to the van Winkle I sampled last night. Karl
This has to be my Favourite Bourbon so far to date. It is smooth and classy. i could drink it all day. Im young and English so love whisky but if i fancy a change il have this. Another thing to thank the Americans for!
(Shhh don't tell them i said that or your never here the end of it!)
I tried this after drinking many other bourbons. I was quite impressed. My friends ,and family, all thought it was a great bourbon.
Still my favourite bourbon. Not an outrageous price. A simple, old fashioned bottle design and an elegant yet masculine drink for the grown ups. Smooth and well rounded.
Drinks like Chuck Norris in a top hat.

Had this at a bar a week ago and is the best bourbon i tried so far. It's got a nice pop-corn taste to it.
Really popular bourbon and justly so, full of character and very versatile. Agree with the chaps at Master of Malt - makes an excellent old fashioned, enjoyable on its own, and great value for money. Nose: Dense, creamy, charred oak. Vanilla sweetness. Treacle and spice with a dash of leather. Palate: Nicely rounded, with a good hit of spice, toasted oak, sweet rye and a good nutty coffee. Almost syrupy. Finish: Good length, rather sophisticated with more of that sweet rye and toasted oak. Vanilla rounds off with just a lingering touch of spice and fine leather.
This is great stuff! It is very easy to drink and entertaining for all levels of whiskey connoisseurs. If you want one of the best bourbons, look no further
