Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Brown-Forman Distillery Inc ~ Woodford Reserve Distillery

APPEARANCE: Warm Umber. NOSE: Soft nutty notes drizzled with light caramel and milk chocolate coat a layer of fruit character (apple, dried fruit, tropical fruit). Hints of brown spice, savory mint, and brown sugar mingle with a rich note of freshly milled toasted oak. TASTE: Dark chocolate and caramel-coated nuts are dried out with a dusting of cocoa powder and brown spice. A fruit medley brightens a trace of toasted coconut and rich, bright oak character. FINISH: Nutty and subtly sweet chocolate malt notes.
