Woodford Reserve Kentucky Rye Whiskey (750ml) (Previously $40)

SKU #1198403 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. (KN)  (7/2015)

Whisky Advocate

 Distilled from a relatively low-rye mash of 53% rye, 33% corn, 14% malt; true to Woodford Reserve form, a mingling of whiskeys distilled at Woodford and at Brown-Forman in Louisville. Nose of leather, cinnamon, rye snappiness, and hints of red raspberry. Hot and lean on the palate, spicy/sweet until rye’s bitter layering floats in, making for a dry finish as the oak comes on stronger. Balances drinkable and elegant quite nicely, and it’s real Woodford. (LB, Summer 2015)

K&L Notes

Woodford Reserve's new rye whiskey is not only delicious, it's one of the most interesting new ryes on the market. The distillery does a 51% rye mashbill (the rest a combination of corn and barley) on their Scottish-style pot stills and blends the mature whiskey with an identical mashbill distilled traditionally on a column still from the Early Times distillery in Shively, Kentucky. The result is quite pleasing, showcasing the leaner, grainier notes of the rye itself, but while balancing that spice with just the right level of richness. It's like a combination of Sazerac and Old Potrero in one bottle. A delicious new addition to the market.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
