Maple-Finished Woodford Reserve
Posted: February 11, 2011
(continued from page 1)
AROMA: The nose includes a striking toffee note, crème brule, plums, cinnamon toast and just a bit of the maple sugar one expects.
PALATE: A velvety mouthfeel that suggests olive oil chimes in before the flavors even register. Then the spice announces itself with cinnamon and licorice, followed by dried fruit (especially prunes) and root beer. It is at the tale of the palate that the maple sugar sweetens up the flavor ride.
FINISH: The whiskey seems to take forever to end, bringing on toast, nuts, a baseball-bat woodiness and more of the maple candy.
