Woodford Reserve has released its annual limited-edition, high-proof expression: Woodford Reserve Batch Proof.
The 2021 release is 128.3 proof, and housed in a new bottle. This expression is part of the annual Master’s Collection series, meant to recognize the craftsmanship of Master Distiller Chris Morris and Assistant Master Distiller Elizabeth McCall.
Batch Proof is also a showcase of Woodford Reserve’s process of blending barrels into a batch and then bottling the whiskey at its actual proof, straight from the barrel.
Batch Proof has the same grain bill and process as Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon, but bottled at a much higher proof than the traditional 90.4.
“Most people do not get to experience Woodford Reserve at such a high proof presentation, so we are honored to share this special bourbon with the public,” says Morris. “The depth of flavor found in Woodford Reserve Batch Proof is truly remarkable.”
This limited-edition expression is available in select U.S. and global markets for a suggested retail price of $129.99 per 750-ml. bottle. It’s also available at Woodford Reserve Distillery starting Wednesday, March 17.
