Woodford Reserve Seasoned Oak Finish is the fourth edition in the Woodford Reserve Masters collection. Seasoned Oak Finish continues the series of one time only products that celebrate Woodford’s historic distillery’s legacy.
Woodford Reserve understand that barrels play a very important role in the creation of whiskey. About 70% of the spirits flavour, aroma and its entire colour comes from the oak barrel that it is aged in. Woodford Reserves Seasoned Oak Finish, features bourbon aged in unique barrels crafted with wood that has been seasoned longer than any previously used in the industry. After each time a barrel is used to age a spirit that barrels gains the flavour of the spirit as well. The staves for most bourbon barrels are seasoned for three to five months; however, Seasoned Oak Finish combines fully matured Woodford Reserve with barrels crafted from wood that has been exposed to the outdoors for three to five years, the longest seasoning known in the bourbon industry.
Out of every distiller in the bourbon industry, Woodford are the only ones that craft their own barrels, allowing them to control the entire process. By finish ageing Woodford Reserve in barrels that have been crafted from oak and seasoned for several years, means that Woodford have created a bourbon unlike no other in the industry.
