    Woodford reserve 2012 derby, worth a look?

    Found two bottles 1l at $65 of the 2012 derby, anyone have memories fond or otherwise of this?

    I was always under the impression that the stuff in those bottles was the same as the stuff in all the other Woodford bottles. Although, I'll bow to someone who may have more knowledge than I.

    Yep, Costco was selling the 2013 version for $39.99 earlier this year. Same stuff, just a 1L commemorative bottle.

    So one could say the value really was in the container like they used to say on EBAY . . . ha!

    The bourbon in the bottle is the same. Each year they have a different scene on the bottle to commemorate the KY Derby. Kinda like Maker's Mark and their commemorative bottles every year. Same stuff in the bottle, you're just paying extra for the packaging basically.
