Labrot & Graham Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select KSBW
First Look: “Light golden amber in color.”
Nose: “Butterscotch, vanilla, toasty oak, sweet corn cereal, and milk chocolate-coated raisins.”
The fragrant and complex nose showcases butterscotch and vanilla which swirl from the glass. Toasty oak and sweet corn cereal meet the milk chocolate-coated raisins notes to create a wonderfully delicately layered nose.
Palate: “Caramel, sweet corn, soft oak, cinnamon, cocoa, vanilla, and a touch citrus zest.”
The caramel and sweet corn come together to create a palate coating sensation of soft vanilla and cinnamon. The citrus zest and cocoa complete this complex and mouth watering palate.
Finish: The finish here is round, soft and delicate showcasing the elegance of well crafted bourbon.
Fair Trade: $35
Verdict: Woodford Reserve is wonderfully smooth; the sweet layers of flavors keep you coming back for more. At $29, this is definitely worth the price of admission and will keep its spot in my whisk(e)y cabinet. If you have passed this one up because it’s readily available do yourself a favor and pick one up.
