Break-even Bottle No 54 | Woodford Reserve Batch Proof | The Cottage
Tuesday August 31, 2021
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Introducing progressive break-even bottles. These bottles are still exquisite and rare, outside of what you’ll typically see on menus and sold in 1 oz. pours for cost. And now come back the following week for another exceptional bottle from the same producer to compare tasting notes. (We’ll also open our library with special deals on tastings from bottles on our shelf from each week’s producer.) Tuesdays only, we open the bottle at 4p and sell 1 oz pours until it’s gone.
Reservations are highly recommended but not required.
Batch Proof is a celebration of Woodford Reserve’s proprietary process – blending barrels into a batch and then bottling the whiskey at its actual proof, straight from the barrel. Batch Proof is crafted using the same grain bill and process as Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
Batch Proof, however, takes Woodford Reserve’s trademark flavor range of sweet vanilla and toasted oak to a whole new level offering consumers the privilege of tasting Woodford Reserve in its purest form (and not the standard 90.4 for which Woodford is known).
PROOF: 128.3 °

NOSE: A complex medley of rich tea leaf, oak and dried leather notes are underpinned by delicate hints of peppermint and fresh cedar.
TASTE: Dry tea notes are balanced by slightly sweeter dark caramel and cocoa notes. Traces of peppermint brighten a potpourri of dried berries.
FINISH: A long subtle dryness is highlighted by a lingering dark chocolate espresso fade.
Event Cost: 4.63
