Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection Historic Barrel Entry Straight Bourbon
This 2022 Master’s Collection was made with newly-distilled whiskey that went into the barrel at 100 proof.
The barrel entry proof of “new make” plays an important role in the maturation process, and the standard for barrel entry proof has changed over the past two centuries.
Color: Deep russet orange
Aroma: An alluring medley of vanilla bean and dried apple dusted with nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon with a hint of cocoa. Roasted coffee and hazelnut soften into notes of dark cherry and plum muddled with spearmint.
Taste: Rich toasted oak is tempered by overripe banana and a medley of cooked berry fruits. Hints of leather, coffee, and baking spice trail into minty dark chocolate.
Finish: A lingering finish of charred oak, leather, and orange oil.
