Woodford Reserve Wheat Whiskey

Woodford reserve announced the release of Woodford Reserve Wheat Whiskey.

According to their website:

“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 percent, followed by malt (20%), corn (20%) and rye (8%) – this whiskey was created by renowned Master Distiller Chris Morris.”

The tasting notes as provided by Woodford Reserve are:

“Aroma: Aromatic spiced (cinnamon and cedar) and cooked fruit (apple, pear, banana) mingle with a delicate floral character sweetened with light vanilla bean and brown sugar notes

Taste: Spicy applesauce and toasted coconut notes enliven an earthy mint and cocoa nib mix

Finish: Dry, subtle cocoa nibs and lingering apple peel”

It is being bottled at 90.4 proof.

There is no mention of price or release date on the announcement I received. However, according to distillerytrail.com, the suggested retail price is $34.99.
