Kentucky Derby Day and Woodford the official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby at Gates Circle

Woodford Reserve Gates Circle Barrel 1

Woodford Reserve

The bourbon has an intriguing nose with a distinct maple syrup aroma followed by cinnamon, nutmeg with floral notes of lavender. In the mouth, rich flavors of orange, nuts and sweet oak prick the taste buds, leaving a smooth finish with lingering notes of vanilla and spicy oak

Woodford Reserve Classic Malt

is a golden straw in color. Aromas of chocolate, malt, and honey are backed by hints of green wood and introduce flavors of buttered bread, strawberries, and vanilla. The finish is long and malty. Enjoy on the rocks or with a splash of water.

Woodford Reserve Batch Proof

takes the flavor range of sweet vanilla and toasted oak that has become the Woodford Reserve trademark to a whole new level.
