In the early 1800s, our Woodford County Distillery, thanks to owner Oscar Pepper and Master Distiller James Crow, was the site for landmark discoveries and innovative techniques in bourbon-making. Woodford Reserve's Master's Collection honors the pioneering work of Pepper and Crow, applying their handcrafted methods to a variety of grain recipes, fermentation styles and maturation processes to create a range of unique whiskeys.
The Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Cherry Wood Smoked Barley is the 12th release in the series. This is one of the first Kentucky Bourbons to use malted barley that's been exposed to cherry wood smoke. With 30% malt content, the Cherry Wood Smoked mash bill has a higher concentration of malt than a traditional bourbon.
A rich amber colored whiskey with a complex nose that mingles deep caramel, brown sugar and dark chocolate atop a layer of cherry jam and nutty crumbles dusted with wood spice. The palate has intense smoked almond and malt character sweetened with cherry pie filling and a touch of caramel. The finish is long with smoked almond notes that fade into a rich cherry fruit jam.
