In my (Roger) opinion the Kentucky Derby should be a National Holiday. Why you ask? Let me explain! It’s easy to remember…always being held on the first Saturday in May. People of all types, get dressed to the ‘nines’, while gathering at Derby-inspired parties, with tons of delicious food and lots (I mean, lots) of Mint Juleps and Bourbon generally means you will need Sunday to fully recover. Sounds like Thanksgiving!?! Or maybe it’s because I’m a huge horse racing fan and have been ever since I was a small kid when I would go to the track with my Dad. Regardless, what better way to celebrate the FASTEST 2 MINUTES in sports than with your very own (Limited Edition) bottle (SAVE 15% & BUY TWO) of the Woodford Reserve ‘Kentucky Derby 2021’ Bourbon!
OH…did we mention it’s a LITER BOTTLE! You’ll be the hit of the party bringing this delicious Bourbon all while serving up hand-crafted, true Kentucky-inspired Mint Juleps for your friends and family. TO TOP IT OFF, if you purchase a bottle (or two) of the 2021 ‘Kentucky Derby’ Woodford Reserve, I’ll personally give you an insiders pick for this years RUNNING OF THE ROSES,. My record as been pretty good of late as I have picked the Derby winner 9 out-of-the-last 10 years. Not 100%, but pretty darn close.
SO WHAT’S THIS BOTTLE COST? Well…you can buy ONE BOTTLE for $54.95/bottle net (scroll down to order). OR…you can SAVE 15% when purchasing TWO BOTTLES by clicking the link below. We made it so simple...TWO BOTTLES for $100 OUT-THE-DOOR! That’s a WIN in my book!
93 POINTS -Wine Enthusiast!
HOW DOES IT TASTE?
Wine Enthusiast, 93 Points: “Look for a gorgeous copper hue with orange highlights, a butterscotch-like aroma and soft feel. This Bourbon offers lots of fruit on the palate-orange, apricot, tropical fruit-that finish long, with caramel and a bracing burnt-orange peel note.”
DISTILLER’S TASTING NOTES: Clean, brilliant honey amber in color, this whiskey is heavy with rich dried fruit, as well as hints of mint and oranges covered with a dusting of cocoa and faint vanilla and tobacco spice. It is rich, chewy, rounded and smooth on the palate, with complex citrus, cinnamon and cocoa. Silky smooth, almost creamy on the finish.
HOW TO MAKE A MINT JULEP?
The traditional Derby Day cocktail, and a southern ritual crafted from bourbon, simple syrup and mint.
2 OZ. Woodford Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey
1/2 OZ. Simple Syrup
3 Fresh Mint Leaves
Express the essential oils in the mint and rub them inside the glass.
To the same glass, add simple syrup, bourbon, and crushed ice.
Garnish with more ice, fresh mint, and powdered sugar.
