There’s a new expression in Woodford Reserve’s lineup: Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Malt Whiskey.
The blended whiskey is based on historical recipes and is influenced by Woodford Reserve Bourbon. It’s 51% malt, which Woodford says results in a whiskey that complements the nutty characteristics you find in the original Woodford Reserve.
“Our newest permanent expression, Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Malt Whiskey, highlights Woodford Reserve’s creativity, innovative spirit, and dedication to making the world’s best tasting whiskeys,” said Master Distiller Chris Morris. “Inspired by history and a distinct flavor profile, Woodford Reserve is charting its own unique path with this new malt whiskey based on historical precedence and our commitment to flavor, something that’s ingrained in everything we do.”
Woodford Reserve Malt is the fourth permanent line extension to join the portfolio, which includes the original Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Woodford Reserve Double Oaked, and Woodford Reserve Rye.
Woodford Reserve Malt is bottled at 90.4 proof and will be sold for a suggested retail price of $34.99 starting in June.
