Woodford Reserve Rye Whiskey Blend

Mention Woodford Reserve to any whiskey fans out there and they’ll immediately think bourbon. And rightly so, the Kentucky-based distillery makes some fantastic bourbon for the budget-conscious yet discerning palate. Now, they’re slated to release a rye. Yes, of course, there’s the Straight Rye that’s readily available. However, this will be a blended rye release, consisting of two different ryes Woodford Reserve has stockpiled in their barrel archives.

Dubbed the Woodford Reserve Blended Rye Distillery Series Whiskey, 69% of the batch is 11-year-old straight rye whiskey from the distillery while the remaining 31% is a separate batch of whiskey distilled from a rye mash bill consisting of 53% rye, 33% corn and 14% malted barley. It’s the first in a series of three releases Woodford plans on making available over the summer months including a Toasted Oak Rye and a specialty barrel-finished option. Official tasting notes categorize the aroma with hints of pears, apples, and graham cracker with a palate full of spicy grain notes along with more sweet fruit.
