Woodford Reserve has released its annual Woodford Reserve Batch Proof, bottled at 123.6 proof in 2020.
This expression is part of the Master’s Collection series.
Woodford Reserve Batch Proof is the same grain bill and process as Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon, but bottled at a higher proof.
“Most do not get to experience Woodford Reserve at such a high proof presentation, so we are excited to have the opportunity to share this special bourbon with connoisseurs,” says Master Distiller Chris Morris. “The intensity and depth of flavor found in Woodford Reserve Batch proof is truly remarkable.”
On the nose is dried cranberry and raisin fruit spiced with sandalwood, clove, aged leather and a hint of spearmint, the company says, with notes of cocoa and dark chocolate. The palate is raisin and brown sugar sweetness balanced with a spicy leather character atop oak, almond and cedar wood notes.
This year’s edition of Batch Proof 123.6 follows the Spring 2019 release of the Batch Proof 123.3.
Woodford Reserve Batch Proof retails for a suggested price of $129.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
