The Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey has been added to the distillery's permanent product lineup on a global scale that will offer a premium flavor profile that's based on recipes from the past.
The whiskey was created by master distiller Chris Morris who concocted the recipe to feature 52% wheat, 20% malt, 20% corn and 8% rye. The libation features notes of cedar, cinnamon and cook fruit on the nose, while hints of "spicy apple sauce and toasted coconut" will be experienced on the palate.
Morris explained the new Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey in further detail saying, "After Prohibition, the federal government permitted four styles of American straight whiskey, each with a different majority grain – Bourbon, rye, wheat and malt. 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. This new permanent expression highlights our distillery’s commitment to creativity, innovation and dedication to making the world’s best tasting whiskeys.”
