|Sour mash and yeast is fermented in the early states of production|
|Woodford is placed into the barrel at 110 proof|
Woodford smells deeply of caramel and vanilla flavors and tastes of oak, spices, and toasted nuts. It has a long finish. It is a pleasant bourbon for drinking neat or with a touch of ice. Or to feel like a true Kentuckian, try a mint julep, which is the classic drink for the Kentucky Derby horse race. A traditional recipe can be found here. Overall, I raise my glass (of bourbon) to Woodford Reserve and congratulate them on making a product which has achieved international fame despite being relatively new to the market.
