Woodford Reserve Straight Malt Whiskey
Chocolate shines through first on the nose, with oak, vanilla pudding, and spice. The palate showcases chocolate malt balls and more spicy oak, along with cornbread, and spearmint. The finish is short and tame, with tannic oak and chocolate tones remaining the common thread, along with bits of black pepper. Very much a retooled, malt-forward take on Woodford's classic profile. Bottled at 90.4 proof.
