89 Highly Rated Bourbon General Review of Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Batch Proof Bourbon

Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Batch Proof 118.4 is an excellent bourbon that is bold, densely rich, flavor-packed, and hot! It provides one of the best-tasting experiences I've had this year. 

Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Batch Proof 118.4

Nose

The nose of Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Batch Proof 118.4 is a little more reserved than I anticipated, but it is a pleasant experience. It features mild toasted oak and ethanol. Some vanilla and caramel, traditional notes, are lurking quietly below the surface. Cookie dough baked with cinnamon powder and brown sugar mingle with traditional bourbon notes. Interestingly, I got pulled away from this beautiful-tasting bourbon for about 5 minutes, and when I returned, the aroma was full of caramel. Wow!

Palate

Please make no mistake about it; the palate of Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Batch Proof 118.4 is not reserved! It has all the notes that connect with my palate: heavy dark molasses, charred oak, a hint of coffee, and leather. The heat is ever present, but the rich flavor is so overpowering that the heat gets relegated to an afterthought. Again, charred sweet oak.

Finish

All the flavors on the palate are present in the finish with a bit of added sweetness.

Smell IS taste. I am just a guy who has been hit with the bourbon bug and who has come to the conclusion that life is too short to drink average tasting bourbons. Go Gators!
