Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Its old gold dress brings out a woody and smoked nose. In the mouth, this bourbon is heady and has a strong character with notes of candied fruit and a firm finish.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Domain and appellation
Built in 1812 by Elijah Pepper, the Woodford Reserve is the oldest distillery in the United States. It is officially recognized as a historical monument.
- Distillery: The distillery Woodford Reserve is located in Woodford County, Kentucky, known as the "country" of bourbon.
- Manufacturing: The Woodford Reserve Double Oaked is made from corn (72% exclusively from the Kentucky region), malted barley (18%) and rye (10%). This bourbon is uniquely aged with a dual maturation: It undergoes a first go in deeply toasted white oak barrels, so more juice comes out of the wood. Then, a second go in new oak barrels, for a more intense flavor which gives it even more character.
