Jumping into February with both feet! Today, 10am EST, Woodford Reserve is releasing Doubled Double Oak 375ml “Distillery Series” at its distillery in Woodford County, Kentucky.
What is Doubled Double Oaked?
Double Double Oaked is the result of finishing mature Woodford Reserve Double Oaked for an additional year in a second, heavily toasted lightly charred new oak barrel. Per WR’s website, the extra year in the barrel creates a bourbon that is distinctly spicier than its original counterpart, known for its sweeter taste and finish.
“Distillery Series” started in 2015 as boutique experimental releases available ONLY at the distillery. More on this HERE.
