"Woodford Reserve's experiments with ageing in wine barrels are consistently interesting. The Frosty Four Wood is no exception. The familiar Woodford flavor comes through with plenty of oak and vanilla, but accented with lively fruit notes and tannins. It's a very rich whiskey that runs a little hot, but carries complexity and depth."
