Made at the historic Labrot and Graham distillery, Woodford Reserve has been a firm favourite among lovers of American whiskies since it was launched in 1996. They are also big sponsors of the world famous Kentucky Derby. Their signature bourbon has a big nose of spice and oak with fresh mint lurking underneath. Dried fruits and honey also there, and also on the palate that is rife with brown sugar, charred oak dried fruits and even coffee. Finish is long with spice oak and touch of smoke. Great anytime of the day, and makes for wonderful Old FashionedÂ and Mint Juleps, or any other whiskey cocktail, actually.
