Elite old-school Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
 
The Woodford Reserve Distillery (people born in the 1800s probably knew it as the Old Oscar Pepper Distillery) was established back in 1812 — which means it's older than lawn mowers or sewing machines. Now it belongs to the Kentucky-based behemoth Brown-Forman, and one of the numerous Spirits they produce is the eponymous Woodford Reserve, a top-class small batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, introduced to our palates in 1996. The distillery boasts with ancient copper pot stills and a century-old cypress wood fermenters. They also have one of the only heat cycled barrelhouses in the world, which gives the Spirits its legendary color and flavor.
 
Woodford Reserve Batch Proof is a limited affair of the standard version without dilution. It's the closest you'll get to sneaking inside the distillery and pouring the Bourbon straight from the barrel. Since the production uses continuous column style stills (your Irish Whiskey went through one), their batches are quite limited, so stocks of The Reserve are fortified with Bourbon from the distillery in Shively, the birthplace of Old Forester. It's an annual release, each year getting an innovative overhaul. The 2019 release comes from a select group of barrels and is an expression on a whole new level.

Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
