Woodford Reserve is a brand of premium small batch Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. The logo on this whiskey barrel shows three of the older long neck pot stills. Woodford uses this distillation method rather than more modern column still technology, for their best whiskeys. They use the three pot stills to successively distill their finest whiskeys. My colleague, Jack Bauer knew all about this stuff. I guess when you only have 24 hours to save the world; you have no time for beer or wine, but have to go straight to the hard stuff. Alas this particular barrel was empty. It had been repurposed as an end table in the waiting room of Duke’s, a restaurant here in Seattle. This had been the second time that we had gone to Duke’s and we were arguably drawn back there, because of their award winning clam chowder. This time I had a flight of their five different chowders, but I can save you the trouble of doing that, because the award winning one was easily the best one. At Duke’s everything is duke related. For example the men’s restroom is labeled the Duke of Earl, while the woman’s is called The Duke’s Girls.
