Woodford Reserve Blended Rye, 45.2%

Price: $50 Issue: Fall 2017 Reviewer: Fred Minnick

This whiskey is bananas. Is it banana pudding atop vanilla wafers or warm Bananas Foster melting into vanilla ice cream? It's hard to say, but the lovely banana-vanilla combination dominates until baked pears, pumpkin bread, rye, and baking spices appear. A medium to long finish brings a bright cherry note. Price is per 375 ml.
