The Bourbon that’s been making history for more than two-hundred years. 

There has been distilling on the Woodford Reserve Distillery site for more than 235 years, making it the oldest Bourbon distillery in Kentucky. Now owned by Brown-Forman — one of America’s largest wine and spirits companies — it has been refitted and set to expand. Since the beginning, the folks at Woodford have been influential in the development and codifying of Bourbon production. In short, they helped invent the spirit as we know and love it today. 

We do not have enough room here to list all the awards and accolades. People just LOVE Woodford Reserve Bourbon. We do too. But let’s be perfectly clear… there are definitely some higher end Bourbons out there. Heck, Woodford has a few top-end offerings that are wonderful. But when it comes to that magic combination of producing a high-quality Whiskey that consistently tastes great, has superior mouth-feel and texture, smells like the tears of angels, AND is affordable to most folks as a daily dram… Woodford Reserve is hard to beat.

SmartAss Corner: 
Woodford Reserve Distillery is named after the county where it’s located. But two-hundred odd years ago, founder Elijah Pepper named the distillery after his son, calling it the Oscar Pepper Distillery.

Good Bourbon. Sweet on the aftertaste
 
Patrick
Patrick,
One of my go-to bourbons. Has a bite up front, but the mellow flavors rise pleasantly as the bite subsides. Sweet caramel is very strong.

Nice sweet taste...it's easy to taste honey and vanilla with a good spicy end...it doesn't cost so much but it worth more than you're going to spend.

Slight Smokey flavor, missing the heavy oak flavor (that's a plus for me)

Jon
Jon,
I accidentally told a guy this was wheated. Got ahead of myself.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Nothing overpowering. Good overall. Sweet and vanilla at the front. Very mild smoke at the finish. Not a lot of spice or long finish. A great can't -get-hurt bourbon. Will appeal to a wide audience. You should have this in your collection to offer to guests who like a "mild" bourbon.

Lou
Lou,
One of my absolute favorites and my go to bourbon. Pleasantly sweet with that simple bourbon character. While I enjoy trying new thing, I always have a bottle of this
 
Shawn
Shawn,
A bit harsh for my taste when served neat. A single cube tames the burn a bit.

Great bottle, a must have, pretty smooth and tasty.
 
Mitch
Mitch,
My favorite bourbon for several years now. Intense vanilla up front with a smooth spicy finish that lingers. Like drinking leather. By far the best bourbon for the price.
 
Aric
Aric,
I little one note. I had a hard time getting past the vanilla.
 
Kyle
Kyle,
Sweet up front with a long comfortable burn throughout; smoky and woody flavors make this very enjoyable. I think it actually benefits from a half cube of ice.
 
Joe
Joe,
Pretty good. I think for the money I can get better bourbons of similar tastes. But I do see why this is considered a top tier bourbon at each of its levels. Probably best described as a good at everything but not great at any one thing, so it will please a wider audience
 
James
James,
One of my favorite bourbons nice and smooth.
 
Mark
Mark,
I'm a sucker for vanilla and this definitely has the aroma and initial taste. I just wish it lasted longer. The spice kicks in quickly and lingers between sips. (I'm new at this, so I could be mistaking "spice" for the alcohol content just letting you know it's there)
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Very smooth caramel great multi faceted bourbon
 
guest
guest,
Velvety smoothness, and only a touch of sweetness. Aside from that, this is a bland and unimpressive bourbon that leaves your tongue expecting more from it. I'd heard many good things about this bourbon, only to be mildly disappointed.
 
Ben
Ben,
I really liked the finish on this one, the smell is a caramel and vanilla combo that was very pleasing. The taste is not sweet and I didn't expect it to be, but the taste hit me like a brick, but not in a bad way!
 
Otniel
Otniel,
Very sweet smooth taste. Great neat or with ice.
 
guest
guest,
Great stuff! It's bold.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Very sweet floral/vanilla nose. Caramel-corn and oak on the palate. Short bitter finish, unfortunately. Too sweet then bitter. Try Four Roses if you like sweet without the bitter finish.
