Woodford Reserve Sweet Mash Redux Bourbon
Woodford Reserve // Kentucky, USA
Sweet Mash Redux is one of two initial members of the new Woodford Reserve Distillery Series, available for purchase only at the distillery in 375ml bottles. In 2008, Woodford released Sweet Mash Finish in its Master's Collection, and Sweet Mash Redux harkens back to it. As opposed to Woodford's typical sour mash fermentation process, the spirit here begins non-soured, or "sweet", changing the base of Woodford's bourbon to its core and producing a highly different profile.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak containers.

"Find a layered and intriguing nose with cornbread, a honeyed-floral sweetness, melon and apples. The palate is more one note after that enticing nose, offering a malty, cereal grain profile with wood and spice. Find a hot, long, dry and oaky finish which leaves the tongue tingling, with lasting notes of black pepper, rye spice and oak. "
