Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Review
As its name suggests, this release is an oak bomb. The double maturation process enriches Woodford Reserve's already flavorful whiskey with endless layers of vanilla, butterscotch, toffee popcorn, and char. The latter adds textural complexity, though it remains a very approachable bourbon all round.
