Woodford Reserve (Versailles, KY) just announced its 2024 Master’s Collection: Batch Proof. Per the brand, this is a celebration of Woodford Reserve’s proprietary process – blending barrels into a batch and then bottling the whiskey at its actual proof, straight from the barrel. Batch Proof is crafted using the same grain bill and process as Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon.

The 2024 edition is 121.2 Proof vs the standard Woodford Reserve flagship 90.4 proof. Per the brand, it was batched from 100+ barrels in various warehouse locations and various floors within those warehouses.

“Barrels drawn from the upper floors of our heat cycled warehouses routinely possess higher proof presentations due to the more aggressive angel share process found there. This batch had more of these barrels in its composition, and therefore a higher batch proof presentation.”
