Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey is made in the traditional style of Kentucky Ryes. It delivers bold flavors of pepper and tobacco with a long fruit and sweetly spiced finish. And it is now available for purchase in Indiana.
Woodford Reserve Rye is the third permanent line extension in their lineup following Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select and Double Oaked. They pride themselves on their original and contemporary approach to bourbon and whiskey while focusing on adjusting one of the five sources of flavor. The five sources are: grain recipe, water source, fermentation, distillation, and maturation. For this rye whiskey, the grain was sourced to produce the signature taste in each bottle of Woodford Reserve. The mash bill contained 35% rye which helped produce the spicy notes.
