Woodford Reserve Kentucky whiskey 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%). 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. Spicy applesauce and toasted coconut notes enliven an earthy mint and cocoa nib mix. Dry, subtle cocoa nibs and lingering apple peel.

Woodford Reserve Kentucky whiskey enters a category that isn’t very crowded by American whiskey producers, and one that usually doesn’t attract a lot of new arrivals either. American wheat whiskeys aren’t too common, even at the craft distillery level. When focusing on the large Kentucky distillery level, only Heaven Hill produces a wheat whiskey, Bernheim Original Kentucky Straight Wheat Whiskey.

Woodford Reserve Wheat and Bernheim Original are actually very similar. Both come in the 90 proof range, and both are barely legal wheat whiskeys. At 52% and 51% wheat respectively, Bernheim only has a three grain mashbill while Woodford one-ups it with a four grain mashbill. However Bernheim carries a seven year age statement while Woodford does not have an age statement, so it could be as young as four years old.

If you normally like wheated bourbons, Woodford Reserve Wheat delivers a profile that is clearly different from a standard bourbon wheated mashbill. That said, different doesn’t equate to better in this case. It’s not the most standout wheat whiskey on the market, and is more akin to Woodford Rye in the sense of it not succeeding at showcasing the unique attributes of the primary grain.
