" Known for pushing boundaries, the Woodford Reserve Masters Collection series has been a mixed bag over the years. With Batch Proof, Woodford literally plays to its strength. This bourbon takes the same mashbill, flavor profile, and beautiful blending that makes up the standard 90.4-proof Woodford Reserve, and ups the intensity to 123.2 proof, uncut and unfiltered. Batch Proof is Woodfords answer to other distilleries single-barrel products. Now an annual spring release, Batch Proof doubles down on what Woodford does best, upping the banana pudding, dark spice, and toasty oak notes to decadent new heights."Jeffery Lindenmuth
Batch Proof is the highly limited, first-ever batch proof offering from Woodford Reserve. Continuing its innovation in whiskey crafting, Woodford Reserve Batch Proof is a straight bourbon whiskey from a select batch of barrels. This limited edition, Proprietary Batch of Woodford Reserve is bottled at 123.2 proof.
The Woodford Reserve Batch Proof expression is a way to celebrate the flavor nuances contributed through a change in finishing presentation and tell the unique Woodford Reserve story of Proprietary Batching. Woodford Reserve Batch Proof is crafted using the same grain bill and process as Woodford Reserve Bourbon. Batch Proof takes the flavor range of sweet vanilla and toasted oak that has become the Woodford Reserve trademark to a whole new level.
