Woodford Reserve Kentucky Derby 144 Limited Edition Bourbon Whiskey
As the official bourbon of The Kentucky Derby, this is the 19th release of the longstanding series. This bottle features the colorful work of Louisville artist Keith Anderson, an employee of the Brown-Forman’s Bourbon Street Cafe.
The Woodford Reserve Distillery sits on what was once an old Distillery founded by Elijah and his son, Oscar Pepper, in the 1800s. Under the stewardship of Oscar and Master Distiller James Crow, their distillery reformed and modernized the process of producing whiskey in the United States — the distillery revolutionized the concepts of sour mash and yeast propagation. Nearly two centuries later, Chris Morris — Woodford Reserve's seventh master distiller — pays homage to Pepper and Crow. Morris, who began working at Woodford Reserve Distillery when he was just 16 years old, is one of the foremost experts in the production and maturation of bourbon and samples up to 180 unique whiskeys each day. “It's about pursuing flavor through modernizing old practices,” says the 55-year-old master distiller. This special limited edition Woodford Reserve is a celebration of the running of the 144th Kentucky Derby. As is the official bourbon of The Kentucky Derby this is the 19th releases in this long-standing artistic series. This bottle features the colorful work of Louisville artist Keith Anderson, an employee of the Brown-Forman’s Bourbon Street Cafe. Since 2007, Anderson has a worked at the private dining room, moonlighting as an artist. This stunning bottle showcases the beautiful thoroughbreds as they break from the starting gate.

Clean, brilliant honey amber complexion, with notes of rich dried fruit, hints of mint and oranges covered with a dusting of cocoa, faint vanilla and tobacco spice on the nose. The palate is rich, chewy, rounded and smooth, with complex citrus, cinnamon and cocoa. Toffee, caramel, chocolate and spice notes abound. The finish is silky smooth, almost creamy at first with a long, warm satisfying tail.
