Woodford's New Bourbon Doubles the Oak
Posted: February 17, 2012
(continued from page 1)
PALATE: Starts with bread dough notes and immediately gets a second wind of caramel, maple and olive oil. Then come black tea, fruits and honey, and finally some vanilla and a distinct spiciness.
FINISH: At the long back end is more toast and bread dough, plus wood and a sweet apple note.
CIGAR PAIRING: We smoked a succession of full-bodied cigars with this and found the lighter of the three, a Romeo & Julieta Short Churchill, to be optimal. The respective bodies matched well, and the Bourbon brought out almonds and cedar on the cigar. The smoke returned the flavor by imparting a bit more zip on the Woodford.
