In its latest release, Woodford Reserve has created a new limited-edition whiskey, aged in five different barrel styles.
The Bourbon began life aged in standard new oak, before the liquid was finished in an Oloroso Sherry barrel, Amontillado Sherry barrel, Ruby Port barrel and lastly a Tawny Port barrel.
Despite the fact that distillery and gift shop are currently closed due to Covid19, the new expression is available via Woodford’s online Curbside Ordering scheme, every Friday from noon to 4pm.
Five Wood is available at a suggested retail price of $49.99, at select Kentucky retailers now.
“This is the first time in Woodford Reserve’s history that we’ve blended whiskeys that have been finished in five different barrels,” said master distiller, Chris Morris. “The result is a rich taste and a bright finish.”
Morris created the Distillery Series to highlight Woodford Reserve’s creative line of complex offerings and to showcase the brand’s commitment to innovation and premium craftsmanship. There are three annual releases of the distillery series.
