Woodford Reserve Double Oaked
Bourbon — Kentucky, USA
Reviewed July 13, 2019 (edited November 30, 2019)
Would you believe it, a spirit aged in two different fresh oak barrels picks up a ton of charred wood and dry flavors? This second standard lineup product forms an ideal contrast with Woodford Reserve, which is one of the most fruit-forward bourbons (along with Buffalo Trace) that I've encountered. This is one of the most universally available bourbons in the country, so I bet anyone who's a fan of whiskey or drinking in general has had a pour or two of this one. In all three flavors, it's slightly smoky, dry, and leathery, with some of those more delicate Woodford Reserve peach and vanillas lurking in the background. It's a really well-balanced bourbon, but not the best value in that $55 range.
