Released annually with a different batch and proof (around 121-126). This third batch is bottled at 123.6 proof, far from the 90.4 proof which is traditional for Woodford Reserve. This limited edition is available in select US and global markets as of February 2020.

"This release from Woodford Reserve is substantially higher proof than their standard expression, coming in at more than 120-proof. It's bold and spicy, complemented by sweeter notes of molasses, maple, and vanilla. The palate also offers notes of baked apples, and a kick of white pepper at the end. This is a much more intense expression of Woodford, and those who enjoy cask strength bourbon will find a lot to like."
