Woodford Reserve 2021 Kentucky Derby 147 ― official sponsor of The Kentucky Derby ― commemorates "The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports". Official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby. Spicy and forceful taking its flavor from the charred barrels that are used to age this bourbon, charred oak, toffee, vanilla and pepper are the dominate flavors. A long lasting dry finish. Enjoy neat, with water, or with ice.
