I have just had the pleasure of attending a tasting presentation hosted by Chris Morris (Master Distiller of Woodford reserve) in the Harvey Nichols store London.

I was slightly late due to traffic and missed the first 2 minutes of his chat. Notwithstanding I found it to be a very animated, informative and newbie friendly presentation.

We had a tasting selection of 1 DAY OLD Woodford, 3 YO Woodford, Regular Woodford Reserve, compared with Wild Turkey 101, Maker's Mark and BT 90 proof. Chris really elaborated and compared the flavours/merits of the all whiskeys and we all enjoyed a few laughs along the way...

He was open to questions at the end and we enjoyed a quick chat as he went round the tables. I asked him about the release of his 4 grain whiskey and he told me it is coming soon. My eyes are peeled!
