woodford reserve distiller’s select



The bottle is thinner than the cork on my 375mL bottle. The shape of the bottle is like a gravestone with a cork, but the decaling on the label says ‘barber shop’ in a weird way.


huge oak, corn, butter and light isopropyl.


Big bourbon flavor all over the palate. Oak, vanilla, toffee, to start. Then corn, oak, hard candy, some smoke, a long jack and coke and gingery pepper. The finish is ultra long. Grapefruit pith and oak to finish the sip.  A very woody expression.

Please note:

Little bitter on the finish. My mother drinks this on the rocks, to which it holds well. This is a rich and abundant bourbon. The flavor lasts and the finish is super long.


Overall score : 95
