A blend of classic Woodford Bourbons spanning seventeen years for the win.

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 and they have raving fans all around the world to show for their effort.

Several years ago, Woodford began annual releases of what they call the "Master’s Collection." This is the fifteenth installment and our favorite so far.

So, what do we have here in the Woodford Reserve Very Fine Rare Bourbon? This is a blend of 100% Woodford Bourbon juice. That means that it follows the traditional Woodford mash bill of 72% corn, 18% rye, and 10% malted barley. The dram spans across age groups. But importantly… significantly… it includes Woodford Spirit that is seventeen years old. We don’t remember any Woodford of that age in the past. So, even though it is a portion of this blend, we can taste the age in the profile and we like it, a LOT. And it is also worth mentioning that the bottle design is totally NOT traditional Woodford, and it is pretty slick too.

Matthew,
Woody but still very smooth, just not what I pictured for the price.

Justin,
Very smooth drink. Woody on the front end - then opens up to a lightly fruity finish. Almost like a jolly rancher. Very good!

Typical woodford aka average bourbon, but the bottle is nicer. Not worth it especially at Flaviars secondary prices
