General description

Very much your stereotypical bourbon but very well done. Nose has vanilla, oak, caramel, and corn notes. Something about this particular combination, I can sniff this for hours. It is amazing on the nose. Palate offers same notes as the nose but also a bit od cloves, leather, and spice. Spice lingers on your tongue for a bit of time along with the oaky notes plus a touch of vanilla. It is the best of all things bourbon.

Tasted at Jim & Sheila's on 2020-07-12. Syrupy taste on the lips indicated higher ABV to me. Caramel taste with a finish on the harsher side.

General description

Solid whiskey with notes of carmel, dried pineapple, dark fruits, and toasted nuts. Smooth yet dry finish with a marzipan close. A dash of water opens up more fruit notes and brings the carmel forward.

Oh my, I loved this one. Just a little spiciness on the tongue, huge flavors of butterscotch and burnt sugars. So far I've really enjoyed anything from Woodford, this one was great. I haven't tried it mixed yet, but I'd recommend it to those that want a sweeter flavor experience.

amazing bourbon, sweet, sweet nose with maple syrup, brown sugar, caramel and a hint of vanilla, but also some spicyness and pepper. realy nice.
on the palate velvety smooth, the first thing is a charred oak, spicy peppers, but also a lovely sweetness.
on the finish, oaky, vanilla, creme brulee, butterscotch into a slight drying and bitter note at the very end. best bourbon I have tried so far.

General description

This is a very good pour. I am not certain of the price point but based on taste, it is on point. The oak notes over power the vanilla and subtle floral notes I usually pick up from WR, but it's still good. The finish is a bit smoky but not unexpectedly. This is not an everyday sipper due to the heavy oak, but it definitely works as a change of pace.
