Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Batch Proof 2018 Release
This highly limited, high-octane offering from Woodford Reserve is hand-selected from a distinct group of barrels.
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 with Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon. 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. As a highly limited offering from Woodford Reserve, this Batch Proof is crafted using the same grain bill and process as Woodford Reserve Bourbon. This Master’s series emphasizes the alchemic nuances created by altering one of its five sources of flavor: water, grain, fermentation, distillation, and maturation. Woodford Reserve Batch Proof bourbon takes the flavor range of sweet vanilla and toasted oak, that has become the Woodford Reserve trademark, to a whole new level. A straight bourbon whiskey from a select group of barrels, this limited edition, product of Woodford Reserve is bottled at 62.9% ABV. Pick up your bottle today!

A complex medley of wood spice notes including smoked cedar, dark chocolate, pineal, and vanilla are balanced with hints of orange zest, grilled pineapple and cherry fruit on the nose.

On the finish are notes of richly aged leather spice and dark chocolate lead to a crisp dry finish.
