Woodford Reserve is a regular sponsor of the annual Kentucky Derby.
And now Brown-Forman has taken its Woodford promotion a step further with a horse racing stable...

I regulary read a lot of critizism here about WR. I must chime in that it is one of my favorites for many reasons. Mostly I love its flavor for that dark orange aroma that is ever so subtle. Secondly it is an easy pour and will not overwhelm your sipping experience. Lastly, it is very consistant in taste unlike some other "finer" bourbons.

I do enjoy Woodford Reserve, but consistency is not one of their strong suits... this has improved lately, but historically their bourbon has been all over the place.

I haven't tried the latter bottlings, so maybe things have improved -- but its inconsistency is what has kept me away.
I've discovered a couple of Batch 1 bottles which were excellent. But, bottles between the onset of the Birthday Bourbons (which I believe stole 'honey' barrels away from WR) and the introduction of pot-stilled new-make bourbon were, as Mr. Briggs says, "all over the place".

If you haven't already done so, you may find it amusing (and perhaps informative in spots) to review the thread that comes up when you search on " +woodford +candy " with no restriction on the time interval.

Another spicy Spencerian take on WR (and ORVW 15) is here (http://www.straightbourbon.comhttp://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/showthreaded.php/Cat/0/Number/5619/page/3/vc/1). http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
