WOODFORD RESERVE Four grain 46,2%

Very dry and floral. Violets. Old-fashioned candy store. Dr. Pepper? Very un-bourbonlike but not reminiscent of anything else, either.

Enormously mouthfilling. Cherry sweetness. Strawberry marmalade. Chewy oak. A tad metallic (copper?).

Complex spicy oak and honey sweetness.

From the revamped Woodford Reserve distillery at Glenn´s Creek (formerly known as Labrot & Graham). A much needed individual voice for the American whiskey industry. Haven´t seen it as of late. Hope they haven´t stopped making it.

Rating: 8,5/10
