Woodford Reserve is extending its Master’s Collection series with a limited edition high-proof offering. Woodford Reserve Batch Proof clocks in at 62% ABV and was created to celebrate the ‘commitment to craftsmanship’ of master distiller Elizabeth McCall.
McCall, who was appointed as Woodford Reserve’s new master distiller in February, explained, “The trademark flavors of Woodford Reserve are even more pronounced, and bolder, in this celebrated annual release. It’s a high-proof Bourbon with complex flavors.”
The Spirits Business says the bourbon presents notes of toasted almonds, cherry, and overripe banana, on the nose, with hints of oak sprinkled with a citrus zest that evolves into lively pepper. The palate delivers flavors of baking spice, cardamom, and pine, with a finish of leather, cedar, and vanilla.
The Batch Proof Bourbon is now available in select US markets and in limited quantities at Woodford Reserve Distillery.
