About: Unlike many other storied Bourbons, Woodford Reserve has only been around since 1996. Despite its youth, we’re big fans of the brand. The Official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby always makes us feel like we’re in the winner’s circle. But every once in a while, the distillery — based in Woodford County, Kentucky — puts out a limited edition that surpasses the original. 

Our favorite Woodford Reserve’s Masters Collection, the fourth released, is a bold and spicy concoction. As per its name, it is finished in seasoned oak barrels that have been exposed to the outdoors for three to five years — as opposed to the standard three to five months — resulting in a complex flavor profile that combines hints of wood and pepper with smooth and satisfying caramel. The 100.4-proof Seasoned Oak Finish Bourbon is also noticeably stronger than the distillery’s classic 90.4-proof product, providing a substantial bite while still finishing smoothly.
