WHY WE CHOSE WOODFORD RESERVE MASTER’S COLLECTION 1838 STYLE WHITE CORN
1838 is the year when Oscar Pepper and James Crow began distilling whiskey at the site where Woodford is located today, and the Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection 1838 Style White Corn bourbon pays homage to that. Back in the day, white corn was used over yellow corn to bring out the expressions of other grains in the mash bill. We picked this one to demonstrate how delicate bourbon flavors are, and how one small change can lead to a whole new pour!
Nose: Freshly popped and buttered popcorn, honey, and molasses.
Taste: Leather, tobacco leaf, white pepper, fresh new wood.
Finish: Light, bright, and quick with hints of white chocolate. These are just a few of our favorite bourbons that we think you should try. What are YOU drinking for National Bourbon Day? Leave us a comment below!
