New bourbon for tasting in Wrocław
Woodford Reservee Double Oaked / 45,2% – Woodford Reserve Double Oaked was introduced in the late 2011 as the first permanent addition to the distillery core range. Standard Woodford is a mixture of bourbons distilled in pot still and in column still (in Old Forested Distillery) and aged in heavily charred oak barrels. Double Oaked starts as such but later undergoes original finishing process, after being transferred into twice toasted and lightly charred barrels for additional 9 to 12 months. According to Chris Morris, Woodford Reserve Master Distiller, “the double barreling of mature Woodford Reserve in such unique barrels allows the spirit to extract an additional amount of soft, sweet oak character”.
Nose: lots of vanilla, caramel and toffee, touch of marzipan, baked apples and peaches and strong notes of toasted oak.
Palate: caramel, toffee, vanilla custard, buttered toast, cinnamon, cloves, some raisins and lingering oaky bitterness.
Finish: fairly long, toffee and vanilla sweetness nicely balanced with oaky dryness.
