New Booze: Woodford Reserve Double Malt

by Camper English

Woodford Reserve announces the release of its limited edition Master’s Collection which will hit stores in early November. The Double Malt Selections – Straight Malt Whiskey and Classic Malt – are the first fully matured whiskies crafted from malt in Kentucky since Prohibition.

Triple-distilled in Woodford Reserve’s copper pot stills, the Straight Malt Whiskey and Classic Malt are two separate 750ml bottles which are individually numbered and presented at 90.4 proof. Available in major metro markets throughout the United States and select international locations, limited quantities are available at a suggested retail price of $99.99 per bottle.

With the Straight Malt Whiskey matured in new barrels and Classic Malt matured in used barrels, the offerings afford a rare opportunity for a side-by-side barrel style comparison featuring Old World versus New World whiskey styles.

The Double Malt Selections mark the eighth release in the Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection series following Four Grain, Sonoma-Cutrer Finish, Sweet Mash, Seasoned Oak, Maple Wood Finish, Rare Rye and Four Wood offerings. Released periodically at the master distiller’s discretion, the Master’s Collection whiskeys are extremely limited in quantity and bottled only once.

The Double Malt Selections will be sold throughout the United States with limited quantities available in Canada, the United Kingdom, Belgium, France, Sweden, Spain, Germany, New Zealand, Australia and in various Duty Free markets. For more information on Woodford Reserve, visit
