Whiskey Dreams – Woodford Reserve

This was the only bourbon the flight had when I was heading out to Seattle last week. I splurged as I had ten hours of travel in front of me, and an Uber ride after that – so I wasn’t going to be driving.

Was this 50ml bottle worth $13 bucks?

No, absolutely not. Granted, I paid more because I was on a plane, and maybe the altitude effected my taste, but I did not enjoy this Woodford Reserve at all. It was all bite and sharpness.

Overall I’m giving this Woodford Reserve a 30/100. I drank it, and I might again if it is the only thing available, but by god I’m not going to enjoy it.

Pros

  • If it is the only bourbon they have on the plane, well, I guess it’s better than nothing.

Cons:

  • Super expensive when bought on a flight.
  • All sharp edges and hit you in the face alcohol strongness
