Woodford Reserve Distiller's Select Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 700ml
A brilliant clean amber honey colour, the nose on the Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 700ml is heavy with rich dried fruits, mint and oranges covered with a smattering of cocoa. There is a slight vanilla and spiced tobacco aroma on the nose. Rich and chewy, it is smooth and rounded with complex citrus, cocoa and cinnamon. Notes of toffee, caramel and chocolate are at the forefront. Silky smooth, almost creamy at first with a long, warm satisfying finish.

One of Kentucky’s oldest and smallest distilleries, Woodford Reserve Distillery is built on history, sitting on Kentucky’s oldest distilling site where Elijah Pepper began crafting whiskey in 1812. It was on these same holy grounds that years later Master Distiller James Christopher Crow perfected his whiskey-making methods.
The perfectly balanced taste of the Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is comprised of more than 200 detectable flavour notes, from bold grain and wood, to sweet aromatics, spice, and fruit & floral notes.
