You may have heard the phrase all bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon. Well, this is a damn good bourbon and a damn fine whiskey.
It’s from a Versailles, Kentucky distiller you may be familiar with already — Woodford Reserve, a brand known for its commitment to distilling high-quality whiskeys of all types. The company is known for making some of the finest Kentucky bourbon, ever since the first bottle was poured from a Woodford Reserve barrel in 1812.
Woodford Reserve bourbon and whiskey bottles are available year-round, but a few times a year they throw something extra special into the mix.
Celebrate with the folks over at Woodford Reserve with the latest limited-edition release of their Batch Proof series, a bourbon designed to celebrate the distiller’s unique batching process.
Unlike their standard Woodford Reserve Bourbon, which is bottled at 90.4 proof, this mix offers customers the chance to taste Woodford Reserve’s signature flavors in their purest form at 123.6 proof. This batch is straight from the barrel with a blend of sweet vanilla and toasted oak. It’s got intense flavor and incredible depth, making it a one-of-a-kind whiskey drinking experience.
Enjoy aromatic hints of cranberry, raisin, sandalwood, clove, aged leather and just a hint of spearmint. It’s also got some cocoa and dark chocolate layers, a brown sugar sweetness and spicy leather character with a malty sweet finish.
It’s only available at selected retailers in the U.S. and is going for $129.99 for a 750ml bottle. You can learn more about the Woodford Reserve Batch Proof Series bourbon on their website.
If you’d like to purchase something from their website collection, we recommend starting off with this bottle instead.
