Labrot & Graham Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

By | February 12, 2012

It is not often that the Wall Street Journal profiles a distiller. But it did just this last April when it published a piece on Chris Morris of Labrot & Graham.  In part, this was due to Morris’s widely acknowledged expertise—the man really knows his whiskey. The article also likely was motivated by the success of Woodford Reserve. This Bourbon did not exist until 1996, and within a decade it had become synonymous with high quality.

Woodford Reserve’s appeal is not difficult to understand.  It comes packaged in a lovely perfume- or apothecary-like bottle.  The color of the whiskey is gorgeous.

And the flavor is big–this Bourbon is 90.4 proof and oozes toffee, tobacco, and spicy rye.  It definitely a Bourbon to be taken neat or with minimal water.  Woodford Reserve is worth the $30-$35 a bottle price tag.  (Rating ****1/2)
