Woodford Reserve is proud to announce the release of their newest permanent expression.
Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey is based on historical recipes but influenced by the iconic core Woodford Reserve Bourbon brand.
Woodford Reserve Wheat is made with wheat as the dominant grain, with a mashbill of 52% wheat, followed by malt (21%), corn (18%) and rye (8%).
“After Prohibition, the federal government permitted four styles of American straight whiskey, each with a different majority grain—bourbon, rye, wheat and malt,” renowned Master Distiller Chris Morris said. “Woodford Reserve now has all four whiskeys as part of its permanent family of brands—Woodford Bourbon, Woodford Rye, Woodford Malt and now Woodford Wheat.”
Nose: Aromatic spiced (cinnamon and cedar) and cooked fruit (apple, pear, banana) mingle with a delicate floral character sweetened with light vanilla bean and brown sugar notes
Palate: Spicy applesauce and toasted coconut notes enliven an earthy mint and cocoa nib mix
Finish: Dry, subtle cocoa nibs and lingering apple peel
