Woodford Reserve Kentucky Derby 149 2023 Edition is a truly special bourbon that captures the essence of the world-renowned Kentucky Derby. Each bottle is individually numbered and comes in a commemorative box, making it a perfect addition to any collection or gift for any bourbon enthusiast or horse racing fan.
“This is our most collectible Derby bottle yet, as Secretariat is perhaps the most revered and most loved racehorse in history,” Woodford Reserve Master Distiller Elizabeth McCall said in a news release. “Even 50 years after his stunning achievement, Secretariat’s Triple Crown run is still considered one of the most iconic achievements in sports.” Crafted by Woodford Reserve's Master Distiller Chris Morris, this bourbon is made using only the finest ingredients and traditional methods of production. The nose opens with a rich aroma of dark fruit, toasted oak, and vanilla, followed by a palate of caramel, honey, and spice. The finish is long and smooth, with a lingering warmth that leaves a pleasant aftertaste.
