    New from Woodford

    Just heard that Woodford will have a new offering on March 1: "Double Oaked". The theory is, twice the wood, twice the flavor. Rather than a special, like the ryes from this year and the four grain offerings in the past, this is supposed to be the first extension of the brand. Woodford is one of my "go to" drinkers and the new offering sounds promising.

    Although, the OP of the above link could have made it a wee bit easier by not abbreviating in the thread title.

    It sounds interesting to me as well, as long as it isn't an oak bomb.

    Re: New from Woodford

    Yup, they have been using their master collection series to test market new techniques.

    The double oak is standard Woodford that's been aged an additional year in new oak. However, the new oak has been treated differently. It's been toasted twice as long and lightly charred. This should give it more buttery, caramel notes.

    They say its due for release in March. It's on my radar.

    On my radar too. Not a big fan of regular Woodford, or most of the Master's Collection, but the Seasoned Oak release was my favorite of those. I this Double Oak is going to emulate that.

    I think I'd really be looking forward to this, if not for the low (90.4) proof.

    wondering if I would get the same overall effect by vatting the WR I have languishing in the cupboard with some Devil's Cut.

    BF was kind enough to send over a review sample and it is quite nice. I'm not sure if it's $50 bourbon or not but it's much improved over regular Woodford.

    Current WR is a mix from the WR distillery and BF distillery. I had heard that they would eventually offer a straight WR bourbon. I wonder if this will still be a mix or all WR pot still bourbon.

    Re: New from Woodford

    When I heard about this, I was instantly reminded of what I used to tell my winemaking clients..."Oak is wood. Wood is a picture frame, not the picture." That said, had a taste of this over last weekend and was pleasantly surprised. Very nice, well-integrated, too. I'll grab a bottle when it comes out.
