Woodford Reserve

The mashbill for Woodford Reserve features a high percentage of rye: 72% corn, 18% rye and 10% malt. The whiskey is also unusual 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!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

Reviews for Woodford Reserve Kentucky Bourbon
Excellent quality of service
I remember buying malt whisky from Master of Malt in the ‘90s. In those days, the customer would select from a paper catalogue, and order by telephone. Well, times change. :) The website provides plenty of information about the products, and ordering was easy. Shipping was prompt, and I’m delighted with the smoke-and-honey flavour of the Woodford Reserve bourbon. Excellent quality of service from Master of Malt, consistently over a period of thirty years.

Only for the sweet toothed...soon to be no toothed.
N: A tabacco orange.
P: Like eating a pack of opal fruits all at the same time. Daft sweet fireworks.
A: Sweet wooded spice, warming lingers about.

The best for an Old Fashioned
There is only one cocktail for me, the Whiskey Old Fashioned.
There is only one bourbon for it, Woodford Reserve.
I’ve tried them all, Wild Turkey, Beam, Bulleitt, Four Roses, Tin Cup, you name it.
And although there’s some 8/10, some 9/10, there’s only one 10/10! Woodford.

One of the best ....
Not a drink for those with a weak heart . Rough start but very smooth and lively end . Aroma of ripe peaches and a taste of wonderful espresso . One of the best bourbon I have ever had and always enjoy .

Decent introduction
Creamy butter, light oak with a hint of spice to it. Great introduction to bourbon. Doesn’t have that young Scotch burn to it and for the price, great value for straight drinking or cocktails.

Nice, easy drinking ‘starter’ Bourbon. Gingerbread and brown sugar.
A first taste. My previous experience of Bourbon is confined to Whiskey Sours made with simple Kentucky Whiskey decades ago when I lived in the USA.
I have quite a collection of Malt Whiskies and love them but this was a fascinating introduction to decent Bourbon. Easy drinking with sweet, spicy complexity. My initial reaction was ‘gingerbread’ with brown sugar, honey and spice (cinnamon etc.).
Too easy to drink. My wife actually liked it (she won’t touch a Malt) which is significant.
I enjoyed it a lot and will consider it over time and explore its complexity in more detail over time.
