Woodford Reserve Batch Proof 121.2 is the latest installment in the distillery’s annual limited-edition, high-proof line.
Batch Proof represents more than 100 different Woodford Reserve barrels blended together, presented at the exact proof from those barrels. Barrels used in Batch Proof were drawn from different dates of production, and matured in various warehouses and different floors within those warehouses.
As a result, the liquid showcases a range of aromatics, fruit, spice, wood and grain characteristics not normally found in the brand’s standard 90.4 proof.
“Barrels drawn from the upper floors of our heat-cycled warehouses tend to possess higher proof presentations including this limited-edition batch,” says Master Distiller Elizabeth McCall. “Batch Proof allows consumers to taste Woodford Reserve exactly as it comes out of the barrels.”
On the nose is vanilla bean, brown sugar pecans and tropical citrus fruits with notes cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, the company reports. The palate brings sweet toasted oak, cocoa, pineapple, dried strawberry and spiced berries, before a finish of dried strawberry, toasted oak and honey
Woodford Reserve Batch Proof 121.2 retails for a suggested price of $149.99 per 750-ml. bottle. It’s available nationwide this month.
