Cinnamon and cedar are layered with apple, pear and banana, mingled with a delicate floral character. Applesauce and toasted coconut notes enliven earthy mint on the palate. Dry with subtle cocoa and lingering apple peel.
Woodford Reserve Wheat is based on historical recipes but influenced by the iconic core Woodford Reserve Bourbon brand. With wheat as the dominant grain – at 52%, followed by malt (20%), corn (20%) and rye (8%) – this uniquely crafted whiskey boasts fruit and floral flavors.
Woodford Reserve Wheat Whiskey is the latest addition to the Woodford Reserve family. This four grain whiskey is considered a wheat whiskey because its mashbill contains just over 50% wheat. According to Woodford Master Distiller Chris Morris, “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.”
