Country: USA

Region: Kentucky

Type: Bourbon

Bottler: Distiller

ABV: 59.2%

Score: 94 Points

Part of the Master’s Collection from Woodford Reserve, this is bottled at barrel-strength (59.2% or 118.4 proof). The nose has the classic Woodford notes of vanilla, toasted oak, honey, and a hint of caramel candy. The taste is sweet with a subtle bite of black pepper and touches of vanilla, toasted oak, caramel, and chocolate. The finish is long and smooth. Excellent! (July, 2022)
