General description

I find American bourbon can be very hit and miss. It's either below par or outstanding. Luckily Woodford Reserve Distillers Select is in the outstanding category.

Superb rich/dark oak wood flavour on the initial hit with a good taste of alcohol, not too much, but just enough. This leads way to smoothness and a creamy mouth feel with lovely sweet caramel and burnt sugar.

If you are new to bourbon skip all the usual stuff like Jim Beam and Jack Daniels. Pay the little bit extra for in my mind THE best entry level bourbon on the market.

Exceptional bourbon one which will sit in my cabinet for a long time to come.

Nose

Rich, dark, woody and spicey

Palate

Pleanty of oak wood spice. Creamy and smooth with burnt sugar and rich caramel flavour.

Finish

Sweet and spicey.
