Based in Woodford County, Kentucky, Woodford Reserve began distilling their bourbon whiskey in 1812 in their distillery located just eight miles from the town of Versailles. Over the years, the brand has won countless awards thanks to their exquisite range of premium whiskeys.
One of their limited edition releases, the Woodford Reserve Holiday Edition 2018 is the most recent iteration of their special annual bottling of their famed Woodford Reserve Bourbon. Made from a traditional bourbon mash consisting of corn, rye, and malted barley, the bourbon is aged in new American oak barrels for at least 6 years before being bottled at a hearty 90.4 proof. And to ensure that you won't run dry before you want to, this limited edition bourbon comes in a 1 Liter bottle.
Like its predecessors, it’s packaged in a beautiful collector’s bottle featuring stunning artwork depicting the distillery in winter. A perfect bottle to add to your collection.
On the nose, the bourbon carries the brand’s characteristic thick and pleasing aroma accented with notes of honey, cocoa, vanilla cream, butterscotch, toasty oak, and subtle smoke. The palate brings more cheer with rich and creamy notes of espresso beans, winter spice, sweet cereal, ginger, almond oil, rum, and a generous helping of rye spiciness all tied together with a long finish of mature cereal and oak.
