Woodford Reserve Straight Malt Whiskey
Made from a 100% malted barley mash. Both are triple distilled in Woodford Reserve’s copper pot stills. Both are bottled at 90.4 proof. Both are aged around the same as regular Woodford Reserve, 6-8 years. In fact, per Woodford, the two “are only one week apart in age in the barrel.” It’s only the nature of the barrels used for aging that distinguishes the two.
Woodford Reserve tells BourbonBlog.com that they will release a limited edition Master’s Collection which will hit stores in early November 2013. The Double Malt Selections – Straight Malt Whiskey and Classic Malt – are the first fully matured whiskies crafted from malt in Kentucky since Prohibition.
Uniquely triple distilled in Woodford Reserve’s copper pot stills, the Straight Malt Whiskey and Classic Malt are two separate 750ml bottles which are individually numbered and presented at 90.4 proof.
