Woodford Reserve Distillery Master's Collection Four Grain, 46.2%

Price: $80.00 Issue: Spring 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

The first four-grain, 100% copper pot-distilled bourbon in many decades. The flavors are distinctive, silky-textured, and seamless. Bright fruit notes of berries and citrus are balanced nicely by maple syrup, caramel and toffee. The whiskey is quite nutty too and delicately spiced with vanilla, mint, and cinnamon. It finishes pleasingly smooth and polished.
