    I can't drink my old friend Jack again after trying this Bourbon... The only Bourbon I've been able to sip without having to be a yearly treat.

    Beautiful rich flavour with the depth of a single malt. I've been a whisky drinker for many years now and tend towards the heavily peated medicinal whiskey. I do like the bourbons but they tend to dissappear rather fast once the bottle is open. A good friend bought me this for Christmas and on opening the nose was intensely caramel with sweet overtones. glass later and it's definitely one to savour rather than chuck down your neck. It's got a lovely citrus balance on the tongue and the aftertaste is green leaves with hints of tobacco and liquorice. Highly recommended and I will definitely buy again

    One of the best bourbons I've ever tried, especially in its price range. Very full-bodied and meaty.

    Have never been a big fan of bourbon, but was introduced to this whilst in the U.S. last year and have been won over. Probably not one for the conoseurs, as the flavours aren''t that complex or heavy, but if you''re after something smooth and satisfying this ticks the boxes. For the small premium on your mass produced rubbish this is more than worth it and can easily measure up to bourbons twice the price. Needless to say I recommend it.

    I''ve purchased this around 4-5 times and each time I''ve had it it has never failed me, it can easily beat out some of the more higher priced bourbons like wild turkey rare breed

    I''d recommend this too anyone who likes a nice rye kick in their bourbon, and a long, pleasing finish in their whisk(e)y in general.

    Quite simply my favourite bourbon. First tried it in 2010 and loved it. Superbly smooth and balanced.

    I''m certainly a bourbon virgin, (having drunk single malt for many years) so I thought I would give one a go! This lovely whiskey satisfies my sweet tooth whilst providing a sophisticated array of flavours that make this a fantastic sipping whiskey - I would highly recommend this drink to anyone. P.S. goes brilliantly in an old fashioned.

    I had my first Woodford Reserve experience on a British Airways flight in 2010 and it remains my favourite. Easy to drink neat even at 43%.

    Recommended by a wine merchant in Washington DC who knew his products & he said he had Bourbon twice the price but not twice the flavor & I was not disappointed I asked if he drunk Bourbon & which would he drink on a mid budget & this was it .

    Such a great surprise opening this bottle!!! I wasn''t expecting it to be as nice as it is! You get a very premium tasting whiskey for the price you pay. I''ve had more expensive bottles that have disappointed. This really doesn''t leave you with any disappointment!

    One of the best bourbons I''ve ever tasted with an affordable price, will definitely be buying another bottle

  • 7 October 2013

    A lovely bourbon to drink neat, but is the best whiskey for a really good Old Fashioned.

  • 5 August 2013

    My favourite bourbon - in fact my favourite whisky full stop. Smooth as smooth can be, but rich with a beautifully complex flavour full of spices, cinnamon, chocolate, nuts, orange, and oak. A long, spicy, aromatic finish. Well balanced, and mixes well in an Old Fashioned, Manhattan, or of course a Mint Julep.

  • 17 January 2013

    This is now my favourite bourbon. Suits my sweet tooth and is very smooth sipping whiskey

  • 2 January 2013

    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(!)

  • 14 November 2012

    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

  • 20 September 2012

    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 ;-)
