*Bourbon Buyers Club Exclusive*
The folks at Woodford Reserve are led by Master Distiller, Chris Morris– who is not a generational distiller like many of his counterparts. He did grow up in the industry, though, as both his mother and father were distillery employees.
Morris himself has worked with Woodford Reserve since 1976 and took on his current role in 2003. He has been responsible for continuing the signature taste of the brand’s flagship bourbon as well as developing special bottlings. These include Woodford‘s Double Oaked, Rye, and each of the Master’s Collection bourbons, which are an annual release. These often introduce new ingredients and interesting barrels to the bourbon, offering an intriguing taste of the possibilities whiskey holds.
This bottle along with the #9 Rye are the two barrels I picked out in August and have been itching to bring it in ever since.
When did I know they were going to be 1 liter bottles? When they were delivered to the restaurant in 1L bottles. I had no clue. That makes this one the best bang-for-your-buck offer I’ve ever been able to serve up to the Bourbon Buyers Club. Inviting aromas of butterscotch, orange jam, dark chocolate and toffee with a touch of spice that brings it all together. On the finish, a hint of heat that compliments notes of chocolate, creme brulee and a little cedar. This one lingers for a mile.
