This was good. I'd recommend it. Not really as familiar with this brand, so I took a chance that was worth it.

Composed of 51% malted barley, 47% corn, and 2% rye in its mash bill, Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Malt Whiskey is the distillery's newest offering in its respectable lineup. Other than the equally good M.B. Roland Kentucky Straight Malt Whiskey, this product has little or no other competitors in the market in regards to this unique whiskey category. APPEARANCE - Golden copper. NOSE - Vanilla, cereal, orchard fruit, and a scant aroma of fresh spearmint. TASTE -

Great bourbon whiskey! You can easily drink this on its own either neat or on the rocks. Or put it in your whiskey cocktail. I'm always sure to have a bottle of it.
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.
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.
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.
