woodford reserve distiller’s select

Alc.45.2

Bottle:

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.

Nose:

huge oak, corn, butter and light isopropyl.

Palate:

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

fantastic.
