Woodford Reserve Rye Whiskey uses a pre-prohibition style ratio of 53% rye in its mash bill to pay homage to history's original rye whiskeys, making spice and tobacco the dominant note among a sea of fruit, floral, and sweet aromatics, which yields a nice sweetness and overall balance. The perfectly balanced taste of our Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey is distilled, matured, and bottled in Kentucky and delivers bold and spicy character. Woodford Reserve Rye has a spicy nose with distinct notes of rye, black pepper, cedar and cassia bark sweetened with a dusting of marzipan. It contains hints of pear, apple, and almond dance in its depths. Clove, rye, mint, molasses, sorghum, and honey mingle together with hints of apple and malt. It's bold character and emphasis on spice delivers a long and sweetly spiced finish. Our Woodford Reserve Rye Whiskey can deliver complex flavors – neat, on ice, or in a cocktail. Balanced rye makes a more balanced cocktail. Fill mixing glass with ingredients, add ice, and stir gently for 10-15 secs. Strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry. Enjoy!
