Tasting Notes

Color: Deep red / bronzeWoodford Reserve Double Oaked 027 photo copyright Cheri Loughlin

Aroma: Caramel, caramelized fruits, cherry, toasted vanilla

Tasted Neat: Deep honey lingers long after sipping. Nut skin with simmered fruits. Cherry is light. A bit like sipping liquid gold. Lemon peel. Full and rich. Virtually no burn at all.

Mouth Feel: Exceedingly smooth. Excellent roll over the tongue feel. Amazing mouthfeel. Creamy and lush.

Possible Uses, Pairings and / or Cocktails: Neat, splash of water or with a few rocks.

This just might be my new favorite in the Woodford line. It’s a little less sweet than Woodford Reserve. Full flavored. Simply Delicious.
