    Great product. I would definitely buy again. Price was decent. Went down smooth. I did drink it on the rocks but that didn't ruin it for me.

    I really enjoy this bourbon. I don't buy it often because it Is on the more expensive side in to be honest it's not my number one but it is really good. It has a lot of strong flavours that stand out but not overpowerfull and it's more on the sweet side for a bourbon. I would recommend this product

    I actually haven’t tried this yet, I like to buy these bottles for the design, and then I buy a second one to drink. The artwork is incredible! I’ll update once I try it

    One of my husbands favorites. Smooth and bold. Prefers this to many options at local liquor store. Wish price was a tad lower but flavor is excellent

    Was a gift for my husband, but ended up as a gift for me too. Always expect consistency and high quality with Woodford. And a big fan of the Derby - bonus!

    Woodford Reserve is one of the top bourbons, even amongst the Kentucky distilleries. Perfectly smooth for drinking neat, added to drinks, or for the best bourbon ball candies. Sweet smokiness.

    Incredible drink. It's a wonderfully smooth drink, fabulous in cocktails and great on its own with a few ice cubes. It makes the best manhattans and it's my drink of choice. It's expensive but I promise you it's worth it.

    This is the wrong bottle. The store’s inventory shows the correct bottle. You all should keep the inventory accurate.

    Woodford Reserve is a solid go to with Bourbon and a great price point.

FAQs

Bourbon is a corn-based, aged spirit that, while legally can be produced anywhere in the U.S., is Kentucky’s signature liquor; in fact, Kentucky distilleries make 95% of the world’s bourbon and the Bluegrass State hosts over a million visitors annually for bourbon tasting tourism.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
Much like how a square is a rectangle, but a rectangle is not a square, bourbon is a whiskey — but because of the stricter standards set for bourbon distillers, most whiskies are not considered bourbons.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Bourbon’s ingredient list is short and sweet (literally): corn, other grains, water and yeast. Barley, wheat and rye grains are often featured in the mash composition alongside the liquor’s signature corn base, but even so, the FDA considers straight bourbon as a gluten-free product that is safe for those with Celiac Disease or for individuals who suffer from other forms of gluten intolerance.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
