Woodford Reserve is one of the stops along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. My wife toured the distillery 6 years ago with two high school friends. She purchased me a bottle of straight bourbon whiskey for my 60th birthday, a dubious move considering my longstanding indifference to so-called brown liquor. Perhaps she thought I'd appreciate the smartly designed wooden gift box
But my first taste taught that Woodford Reserve is in a league of its own. I continue to enjoy it when I feel my taste buds deserve a special occasion.
And although I'm a Retiring Guy, every day is not a holiday in my world.
