Edition: 2024 Master's Collection
Craftsmanship and Flavor
The Batch Proof series is a celebration of Woodford Reserve’s proprietary process – blending barrels into a batch and then bottling the whiskey at its actual proof, straight from the barrel. This process allows for the bourbon's character to be experienced in its most unadulterated form. The 2024 edition, like its predecessors, is crafted using the same grain bill and process as Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon, but its higher proof provides a deeper dive into the bourbon's rich array of flavors.
Nose: A rich and powerful aroma with notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, and toasted oak, complemented by the warmth of spice.
Palate: Full-bodied and intense, with flavors of caramel, dried fruit, and a pronounced oakiness, balanced by underlying notes of citrus and floral nuances.
Finish: Long and satisfying, with a lingering warmth and a sweet, smooth closure that highlights the bourbon's rich texture and complexity.
The Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Batch Proof 121.2 2024 Edition exemplifies the distillery's commitment to innovation and quality. By presenting the bourbon at batch proof, Woodford Reserve offers whiskey enthusiasts a unique opportunity to experience the full strength and character of their meticulously crafted spirit. This limited edition release is not only a testament to the skill of Master Distiller Elizabeth McCall and her team but also a tribute to the rich heritage of Kentucky bourbon making.
