Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Paul,
Though I prefer Scotch, this is a very drinkable bourbon. The sweetness complemented by a little spice is quite nice. Makes me want to see what else is out there in the bourbon world.

Rich,
I hadn't been a Woodford fan in the past but with this bourbon I have turned the corner. Wow, what a smooth drinking bourbon. Straight up, on ice, or with lemonade, it's a great summer sip.

My go to bourbon.
Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Angel,
I know I know, this is a favorite to many, just not me. A woody bitterness overcame any flavors. I also feel it is slightly over priced. Can't win'em all.

Sweet, classic bourbon

Pleasant spice with a slightly familiar taste to the double oaked, while still being quite different. Love both and would recommend picking either one or both up.

Woodford Reserve Double Oaked
Jonathan,
This is my go-to daily drinker. I love it for how approachable it is. Loads of caramel and vanilla and toffee. Tastes great neat. Tastes great on the rocks. I have a hard time imagining a better dram for my palate for the money.
Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Chocolate Malted Rye
Jonathan,
Gorgeous color and a chocolatey nose. Aromas of an 80% cacao bar with the slight bitterness of baking chocolate. Hits hard straight out of the bottle, so give this rye whiskey a few minutes to blow off before you dive in. I tried it neat at first and if you dip your tongue in and take a small sip, you'll acclimate your palate to the heat. From then on, it's a chocolatey & spicy soiree of yummy goodness. Has some Italian Espresso notes too. The finish is looooong and pleasant with a warming back palate that lasts and lasts.

Easy to drink
Woodford Reserve Wheat Whiskey
Carlo,
A little bit too spicey for me
Woodford Reserve Double Oaked
Jonathan,
Dark caramel, brown sugar, toffee, and light spice. Finish is light and lingering with subtle floral notes. Deeper flavors than distillers select, but equally simple. Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon take's Woodford Reserve's award-winning Distiller's Select bourbon and finish ages it in a second heavily toasted and lightly charred barrel.

Very chocolate forward.
Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Aaron,
This is my go-to bourbon. It's just as happy in a cocktail, esp. an old fashioned or Manhattan, as neat. Heavy on the caramel and toffee notes balanced well with stonefruit and citrus notes with a moderately spicy and tobacco finish.
Woodford Reserve Wheat Whiskey
Aaron,
Love this bourbon! I'm finding that I am a wheated bourbon type of guy and this one nestles into my flavor profile quite nicely. So good for such a good price! It is starting to become my go to.

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Derby 146 Limited Edition
Susan,
Woodford's Reserve Kentucky Derby is one of my top Bourbons now. It is very smooth with nice subtle hints of caramel, toffee and a bit of spice. After being introduced to this, I make sure that this one stays stocked in my bar. Absolutely perfect!

Brian,
Awesome extra smokey finish
Woodford Reserve Distiller's Select Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (700ml)
Jonathan,
Smooth with a warm full-mouth smoky experience, strong vanilla, slight hint of sweetness, but only to balance the smokiness. Spice exists, but only when on the tongue adding a nice tingling sensation. Clean finish. Nestled amid the rolling hills of bluegrass and thoroughbred farms sits one of Kentucky’s oldest and smallest distilleries. The iconic Woodford Reserve Distillery sits on the grounds of a National historic landmark. It is Kentucky’s oldest distilling site where the legendary Elijah Pepper began crafting whiskey in 1812. It was on this same sacred soil that years later, Master Distiller James Christopher Crow developed his whiskey-making methods, alongside Oscar Pepper, “which today have become common practice, including the implementation of sour mash into fermentation.” Revolutionizing concepts of sour mash and yeast propagation, and modernizing the process of whiskey production in the US. Woodford Reserve’s Distillery houses an impressive 500-foot-long gravity-fed barrel run, along with their iconic copper pot stills, and 100-year-old cypress wood fermenters. Their facility also has one of the only heat cycled barrelhouses in the world. An impressive mechanism which gives Woodford Reserve its color and signature flavor. Woodford Reserve is also the official bourbon of the Kentucky Derby. Ironically even though Woodford is the official bourbon, Brown-Forman’s Old Forester serves as the bourbon base in the official drink of the Kentucky Derby, The Mint Julep.

Jason,
Pleasantly surprised...does not disappoint! I didn't know what to expect, but was pleased by this smooth and complex, inexpensive whisky. Definitely check it out! I will be buying it again.
Woodford Reserve Kentucky Derby 146 Limited Edition
Jim,
Fantastic bourbon. Hits all the right notes for my palate. Sweet like candy, with a little fruit zest, but not cloying. And a good burn - gentle but firm.

William,
robust flavour but maintains smoothness
