  3. Woodford Reserve Bourbon

    Forman product. A great tasting Bourbon that uses an unusually high proportion of rye grain in the mash bill (18%). What also marks out Woodford Reserve is the use of triple distillation and the inclusion of pot still whiskey. All this makes for a flavoursome and smooth whiskey that can be mixed in high-end cocktails or drunk straight with a little ice. Nose - quite thick and creamy. There are notes of honey and spice, leather, a touch of cocoa, a little smoke, toasty oak and vanilla cream with a hint of butterscotch. Taste - The palate is thick and full. There are notes of espresso beans, winter spice, cereal sweetness, plenty of rye, ground ginger, almond oil, toasty oak and a little rum. Ginger Ale best then Cola, Soda Water and Coconut Water fine, never Green Tea. Finish - long and mature with notes of cereals and toasty oaken spice.
