It wqs reccomended to me in a Liquor store in Florida, and when I returned home I was delighted to see that was on sale in Tesco/Asda.
If you have access to Stephen Frys TV series, he visits and tastes at the woodford distrillery, and it also features in his book of the series, which you may be able to peruse for no cost at certain retailers....

There are too many other nicer tasting, cheaper bourbons out there that dont suffer so badly from off notes or batch variation. I have had WR that is stunning and then the next bottle is as flat as a tack flavour wise.

1. George T. Stagg - hot diggity!
2. Blanton's - comes with the nifty horsey figure on the cork and has a touch more smoothness than most bourbons
3. Bakers - it has a good zippy bite
4. Elijah Craig 18 Year Old - another quality bourbon and probably the one that got my interest in whisky started in the first place.

Has anyone tried this who can compare it to any of the others mentioned? I'm afraid that if we keep discussing bourbon here, I might need to buy more. . .
