Woodford Reserve Four Wood – 05 November 2013

Produced at: Woodford Reserve Distillery.

Description: Your Master’s Collection is an intriguing idea in principle – one limited release every year or so that focuses on playing with one of the “five sources of flavor – grain, water, fermentation, distillation, and maturation.” This is the seventh edition, and the twist this time is that the Woodford Reserve bourbon was aged in four types of wood – American oak as the original aging barrel to maturity, then maple, Sherry barrels, and Port barrels for finishing before blending together. “As with all previous Masters Collections, Four Wood is a limited release with just 336 bottles available for sale nationally.”

Type: Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Expression: Master’s Collection
ABV: 47.2%

Tasting Notes:

Colour: Rich Orange Caramel.
Nose: Full, rich and buttery with an intensely fruity (apple, dried cherry, baked peach) character that is sweetened with hints of maple syrup and toffee.
Palate: Warm and full-bodied with a medley of baked fruit character that layers over a nutty, spicy range of honeyed oak and caramel.
Finish: Long warm and sensuous.
