Woodford Reserve of Versailles, Kentucky tells BourbonBlog.com that they are releasing their annual limited-edition, high-proof expression — Woodford Reserve Batch Proof Bourbon for 2019.
This limited-edition Kentucky straight Bourbon whiskey will be part of the Master’s Collection series, available is selected U.S. and global markets, has suggested retail price of $129.99 for a 75 ml bottle.
Batch Proof is crafted using the same grain bill and process as Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
However, Batch Proof takes Woodford Reserve’s trademark flavor range of sweet vanilla and toasted oak to a whole new level — allowing Woodford fans to taste it in its purest form at barrel proof (and not the standard 90.4 for which Woodford is known).
The Batch Proof was first released last year to celebrate Woodford Reserve proprietary batching process — blending barrels and then presenting the liquid at its actual proof, which this year is 123.2.
This expression celebrates Master Distiller Chris Morris’ vision and Woodford Reserve’s commitment to innovation and craftsmanship within the bourbon and whiskey category.
BourbonBlog.com founder and Bourbon expert Tom Fischer recently caught up with Morris (both pictured above).
“Most people do not get to experience the intensity of the aromas and the smoothness of the whiskey at a higher proof point,” Morris tells BourbonBlog.com.
“With this innovative release, whiskey lovers will have the chance to taste Woodford Reserve the way the masters taste it,”
