Woodford Reserve Double Oaked
Distillery: Woodford Reserve Distillery, Versailles, KY
Age: 7.3 YR
Nose: Caramel, vanilla and oak. It has such a great classic bourbon nose that I just want to sit and sniff it for hours. Coming up behind the big three are hints of orange, butterscotch, mint, sweet tobacco and a slightly astringent pine.
Palate: Caramel, cinnamon, clove, corn and solid oak make up the bulk of the flavors. Pepper and leather are brought out by the rye which is very apparent in this one. Add a dash of vanilla and cherries and you have yourself one hell of a flavor profile.
Color: Dark Caramel
Notes: Overall this is a great whiskey that is well balanced with the savory earthy notes pairing very nicely with the sweet candy flavors that naturally come in a bourbon. A more Earthy & Robust flavor than the Woodford Reserve Distiller's Select.
