Made in the traditional style of Kentucky Ryes, Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey delivers bold flavors of pepper and tobacco with a long fruit and sweetly spiced finish. When crafting our Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey, we meticulously work with the five sources of flavor to ensure exceptional taste and a balanced flavor. Grain – the first of the Five Sources – is exactly sourced to produce the defined taste we’re looking for in every bottle of Woodford Reserve. Our mash bill contains 53 percent rye, resulting in a liquid with pronounced spice notes that’s sweetly hinted with fruit before a long finish.
93 Points Wine Enthusiast - The latest addition to the Woodford line has a sweet aroma, evoking allspice, root beer and caramel. The palate shows plenty of vanilla and caramel but finishes bracingly dry and spicy, with bitter chocolate, clove and a tongue-numbing touch of cayenne.
