Literally everything you love about Woodford Reserve Bourbon, only at full barrel-proof strength.

There has been distilling on the Woodford Reserve Distillery site for over 230 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.

If you stop into a strange bar in a strange land, the distinctive Woodford Reserve bottle behind the bar is a welcome sight — assuring that your cocktail will be made well. For many of us, Woodford Reserve Bourbon is the baseline from which all premium Bourbons are judged. Master's Collection Batch Proof 2018 Release is a strictly limited edition of select barrels following the exact same mash bill and process as their core Whiskey, but it’s delivered at a blistering full proof strength — 62.9% ABV — yielding an explosion of richness and flavor.

Amazingly rich lightly sweet with pecan praline, warm pipe tobacco, pumpkin spice, orange zest, and toasted oak.

The finish belongs in Sherlock Holmes’ library with warm leather, tobacco, and oak ending dry.

The Woodford Distillery is the oldest distillery in Kentucky still operating today, but not necessarily continuously. It closed during prohibition while a few other managed to get permission to remain open for “medicinal production."
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.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
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.
