    I remember liking this in the past as well, I usually drink my Whiskey neat or with an ice cube, and this one has a good flavor.

    So far best bourbon with ice



Woodford Reserve is a great bourbon for its cost, as you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better bottle in the $40 range. When you sip Woodford Reserve, you can expect some subtle notes of vanilla and honey to present as it develops on your palate, followed by some nutty maltiness and spice. You may also note things like dried/charred wood and a bit of corn; not surprising given this bourbon is 72% corn, 10% malted barley, and 18% rye.
Woodford Reserve isn’t particularly expensive, with a shot costing around $2.50 and a 750 mL bottle costing between $38 and $45. This premium bourbon is great for sipping neat or on the rocks, and it makes a great mixer with other whiskeys if you’re into blends. High-quality ingredients include corn, rye, and malted barley, and it delivers notes of vanilla and honey along with spice and malty nuttiness.
For starters, you can drink Woodford Reserve either neat or on the rocks (or you can mix it with other whiskeys, but you should try it on its own first!). Start by sipping it as you would hot tea or coffee, rolling it around on your tongue and letting it develop — that’s how you get the notes of honey, vanilla, corn, and spice. This is important because diving in too quickly and taking a big mouthful can overwhelm your taste buds and ruin the whole experience.
Woodford Reserve is a good gift for someone who appreciates whiskey. Even a connoisseur can appreciate this ~$40 bottle of whiskey and its slightly sweet, warm flavor with hints of vanilla, charred wood, and corn. It’s recommended for people who like to either sip their whiskeys neat or blend them with others.
