Bartenders: Keep an Eye on This New Straight Rye | Partner Tip
Posted on Jan 18, 2015
Meet the Newest Member of the Woodford Reserve Family
As an industry insider, you already know that rye is the whiskey to watch. Driven by the classic cocktail movement, rye continues to grow in favor each year.
What does this mean for bartenders? You need an outstanding bottle of rye behind your bar. Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey is a natural extension of Woodford Reserve’s line of spirits. To complement the spice characteristics found in the original Woodford Reserve, this Rye uses a base of 53% rye, producing a more balanced whiskey similar to a traditional Kentucky rye.
But what really sets this Straight Rye Whiskey apart is its bold character. The distinct aroma of black pepper, cedar and cassia bark leads into flavors of clove, rye, mint and honey mingling with apple and malt. With a long, sweetly spiced finish, this brand new rye continues Woodford Reserve’s commitment to pleasing whiskey fans with a mix of tradition and innovation.
