From the Woodford Reserve “Master’s Collection” comes the 12th Series release of Cherry Wood Smoked Barley Straight bourbon whiskey. It’s a mouthful of a description and a mouthful of flavour to go with it. It’s still true to it’s Bourbon roots containing over 50% corn in the mash bill and aged in virgin oak casks, but with a twist. A portion of the 30% barley component was smoked with cherry wood.
Event though the fruit and timber being burnt don’t taste especially similar there is a hint of tart stone fruit that carries through the whole experience of the product.
