A slightly different addition to the Woodford Reserve Master's Collection - a pair of half bottles of rye whiskies, one aged in a new American cask (like almost all other American whiskies) and the other in a refill cask that once held bourbon. The former shows off the cask's flavors and the latter those of the spirit – an interesting examination of maturation process.
THE NEW CASK RYE
Golden brown, with cinnamon and delicate mint spice on the nose and a creamy balance of sweetness with spiced apple and rich berry fruitiness.
THE AGED CASK RYE
Light straw, with a nose of grassy rye grain with hints or citrus, vanilla and spice. The palate has a distinct soft fresh rye and malt grain flavour dusted with vanilla and sweet oak character, finishing fresh and clean.
Bottle Sizes: 375mL
