Labrot & Graham's Woodford Reserve is a superbly smooth, flavoursome bourbon, rich and full-bodied with a sophisticated range of flavours. Excellent as a digestif after a rich meal. IWSC 2012 - Gold Medal - Whiskey - USA
This is now my favourite bourbon. Suits my sweet tooth and is very smooth sipping whiskey

This is a special one when it comes to Bourbons. It's more refined and smoother than most others, most probably because of its triple distillation. In terms of smoothness I find this to be compareable to Jameson Irish and even Auchentoshan Scotch(!)

Becoming more attainable in uk bars, this is a nice bourbon at the cheaper end of the market, i prefer it to its main price competitors like MM and JB but not in the class of flavour of something like Old Grandad. A good all-rounder

Wow! I've tried gentleman jack, mm, buffalo trace but IMHO this is better! Only had a small dram so far but it was actually even better than expected. If you like bourbons I would say this is worth a shot, if u are in the uk and near a browns restaurant, they have it behind the bar there for £5.85 for a double, so you can try before you buy ;-)

I'm fairly new to the whiskey world and having only experienced Jim Beam and Jack Daniels i was stoked to receive this as a gift at Christmas and man has it opened my eyes, not just about other whiskey's, but how good whiskey should be drunk, and that's neat or over a little ice and i owe it all to the Woodford Reserve, just tastes and smells so good. I will always have a bottle of this in my drinks cabinet.

The best i've ever tasted. I limit myself to just a bottle over the festive period or i would end up with a serious drink problem it's that good.

An amazingly smooth whiskey full of flavour that includes butterscotch, caramel and spices with hints of char and oak. Drinking this is like having a nice cooked meal..it's that good! Well worth the price.

The best nose of any bourbon in my view, close call between this and Elijah Craig.
- anonymous, 19th Aug '11
Nice enough, and not without charm. But I found it lacking in body compared to, say, the more robust taste of Wild Turkey or 100 proof Old Grand Dad.

The Best on the market and in the world , please move distillery to England or just send me a few case,s(worth a shot)

It has dawned on me that the best Bourbons smell of something that the Americans can't even relate to: a Christmas pudding with brandy butter. This has it all - sweetness, caramel, spice
- Andy Mansh, 12th Jun '11
My favourite. It just beats Elijah Craig due to it's smoothness. It may be 45% but It isn't reflected in the taste. This was the whisky we had at my wedding table I rate it that high.

I was gifted a bottle last autumn by a racing buddy

Nice mind !

Amazing bourbon! Very complex, sublime. For me, as a single malt lover, it has also delisious Yamazaki note!!!
- rico, 16th Aug '10
lovely bourbon, but bulleit probably edges it for me and its a few pound cheaper
- anonymous, 15th Jun '10
I've had to pace myself, but now I'm near the bottom of my first bottle of Woodford Reserve. It's almost dangerously easy to drink - so many subtle but distinct flavours which unfold differently with each sip that you can't wait to explore the next one. Now I have to try some of the other bourbons to do a proper comparison.

Bought a bottle of this (from TWE) which arrived yesterday. First impressions are good. Lots of toffee/chocolate on the nose, then ginger biscuits, caramel and vanilla in the mouth. A short, but clean finish leaves you wanting to start the process again. If you have tried Jack Daniels, wipe the slate clean and try this bourbon - it's totally different.
