The tradition and the thrill of the Kentucky Derby are honored perfectly in this unique and delicious Woodford Reserve Derby 142. The artwork adorning the 1-litre bottle for this edition is from the painting “Barreling Down” by Chicago artist Thomas Allen Pauly.
Woodford Reserve is a whiskey that not even bankruptcy could stop. After being closed during prohibition it was reborn again in 2000 producing the bourbon you see before you. And trust me, you’ll be thankful they reopened. The nose is quite woody and has light notes charcoal and dark chocolate. On the palate, it is smooth with subtle spice. It has a delicate woody sweetness, but not quite as potent as the nose. The finish is long and dry with a flowery twist. This is a whisky survived many tribulations, and is happy to remind you how lucky you are that it did.
Remember to toast Nyquist!
