A great craft Bourbon made even better with a Port wood finish for a delectable dram.

The story of Woodinville Whiskey Co. starts in 2010 with two best friends — founders Orlin Sorensen and Brett Carlile. They set out to create a great craft Whiskey, and these two gentlemen started things off right by enlisting the help of industry icon David Pickerell — the former master distiller at Maker’s Mark. So although their business is young, they’ve already won both Craft Whiskey of the Year and Craft Rye Whiskey of the Year for two years running from the American Distilling Institute.

Sometimes you CAN improve on a good thing.

The team at Woodinville starts with the signature, award-winning Straight Bourbon. The mash bill is a tradition corn/rye/barley mix, but the barrels make it unique. The wood is slowly air-dried for eighteen months before being coopered into barrels and slow-roasted to a dark char. The Bourbon is aged in those casks in the extreme weather of central Washington for five years. That’s ALL good stuff. But then they finish it in Ruby Port pipes for an additional six months, making it simply a delectable tribute to wood. As you can imagine, this is limited quantity stuff. You normally can’t even get it outside of Washington. But we got it, and that means you can get it too.

Michael,
Very enjoyable

Thomas,
A very well made whiskey. Cherry-sweet with no rough edges. Not really my preferred style, but I appreciate the quality found here.
 
Phil
Phil,
Apparently this was the straight bourbon and then aged additional six months in the port cask. It smells kind of like the straight bourbon but with a rich and sweetness to it (has a caramel, brown sugar along with hints of grapes) on the nose. Rich fruity sweetness like nectar, followed by layers and hints of almond and citrus. The light but long lingering of all the flavor you just tasted balance well and takes me back to Bellevue winter sitting in front of a fireplace. Woodinville did not disappoint, would buy this again, the price point feels so much more expensive than what I have paid.
 
Todd
Todd,
The nose is heavily cherry, but on the palate it’s bready with some notes of stone fruit. Finish is long and oaky with virtually none of the accumulating sweetness I find in some other port barrel-finished bourbons. Good stuff.
 
Marc
Marc,
Great fruit notes from the port finish, jammy on the nose at first pour. Good spice so you know that it is a bourbon.

Aaron,
Didn't notice a "cardboard wood spice / vegetable cardboard" (?)" like the last reviewer, I thought it was great. Smooth, but not too smooth, great flavor. Could tell it was finished but wasn't sweet or jammy. Would buy again.

Cardboard wood spice finish. Too young? Blinded it against angels envy and others- last place. Wouldnt buy again.

But I will say let it sit for a while and the vegetable cardboard note subsides some

Andy,
Dark fruit and sugar sweet nose. Chocolate and sweet taste with cinnamon finish. One of my favorites.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
I'm a fan of Woodinville Bourbon to begin with, and finishing this Bourbon in a Port cask was a great move. The cherry flavor is rich and smooth, the Bourbon itself is bold and complex, and the Port really shines in the finish. Tastes great straight (haven't tried it over ice yet, not sure I will) and, if you're so inclined, makes a very rich cherry-bomb of a Manhattan.

Jim,
I can’t say that this bourbon is anything more than a four. It just did not lay nice on the palate at all. It is not a bourbon that I would drink neat for sure. Over ice it becomes a little more tolerable. I can see it would be good in a Manhattan or Old Fashioned. My wife actually likes a little in her glass of port wine which wasn’t that bad.
 
Michael
Michael,
I really like the flavor of the port casks in this product - it disappeared way too fast!
 
Robert
Robert,
An incredibly easy drinking whiskey that has just enough spice to entice. The cherry flavor is strong in this one and it gives a warm, sensual mouth feel. The port cask flavors are absolutely obvious in this but do not detract from the bourbon itself. This is an incredibly delicious offering in that $50-70$ range.

Overall a decent bourbon. Not very much of a port finish in the taste but worth the price.

Kyle
Kyle,
I'm new to whiskey, but I live 6 miles south of Woodinville Whiskey in Washington, so it was a logical place for me to start. I did a tasting and distillery tour and fell in love with their straight bourbon! This bourbon finished in a port cask is even more flavorful. I would highly recommend picking up a bottle, or better yet, stop by if you are in Seattle!
