Woodford Reserve has released a new expression as part of its annual Distillery Series, Bottled in Bond.
The Bottled in Bond Act of 1897 requires whiskey to be produced by one distiller at the same distillery within one 6-month distillation “season.” The product must be aged for at least four years in a federally bonded warehouse at 100 proof.
“Given the historical nature of our distillery—a National Historic Landmark—it is only appropriate that one of the oldest distilleries in the country releases an expression in the oldest federal designation for bourbon.”
– Chris Morris, Master Distiller
Morris created the Distillery Series to highlight Woodford Reserve’s creative line of complex offerings and to showcase the brand’s commitment to innovation and premium craftsmanship. There are three annual releases of the distillery series.
Color: Honey topaz.
Aroma: A complex medley of tropical fruit, apple and grape brandy with subtle notes of a nutty graham cracker crust drizzled with honey and toasted coconut sprinkles.
Taste: Tart green apple pie, with a graham cracker crust spiced with a dash of cinnamon. Poached pear and floral notes round out the palate.
Finish: A dry apple peel sweet sweetness lingers on.
This expression is available at the Woodford Reserve Distillery and select Kentucky retailers at 90.4 proof for a suggested retail price of $49.99 for a 375 ml bottle.
