I like regular Woodford but the color was much darker, making regular Woodford look yellow-orange in comparison. The nose was much more complex and the fruitiness was out of this world. I loved it! Good Job Jason, John and company. I hope you continue to pick excellent barrels like these!
I should also note that Woodford is a small batch, not single barrel, so when picking you have to pick two barrels that compliment each other and then Brown-Forman mingles them and and bottles half of it for you as a barrel. Of course you can elect to take both barrels, but that is twice the cost. In some ways this is more difficult than picking a single barrel product.

It took me an hour to drink the three ounce sample John poured me to make my notes. At one point the caramel burst out of the glass making me think of a rich caramel toffee, so chewey and sweet that it takes a long time to finish it. At another point the apple fruit and caramel reminded of candied apples at a fall festival. The aroma and the taste always challenged the palate.
