Old George Brown himself would be proud.

There has been distilling on the Woodford Reserve Distillery site for more than 235 years, making it the oldest Bourbon distillery in Kentucky. Now owned by Brown-Forman — one of America’s largest wine and spirits companies — it has been refitted and set to expand. Since the beginning, the folks at Woodford have been influential in the development and codifying of Bourbon production. In short, they helped invent the spirit as we know and love it today. 

Smooth, pleasantly spiced, and bursting with flavor, Woodford Rye is a Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey that is at least four years old. The mash bill comes in at 53% rye, 33% corn, and 14% malt. Why 53%? Because that what it needs to be. And it’s bottled at an interesting 45.2% ABV. It wasn’t until 2015 that Woodford even made a Rye Whiskey, and the oddly precise numbers in the grain mix and ABV are evidence that they were focused more on taste and less on the math. And we think that they got the taste spot-on.

SmartAss Corner:
Woodford Reserve Distillery is named after the county where it’s located. But two-hundred odd years ago, founder Elijah Pepper named the distillery after his son, calling it the Oscar Pepper Distillery.

jonathan,

Jacob
Jacob,
Sweet to start, peppery to end. A go-to Rye. Very satisfying alone or as the base of a classic rye cocktail.
 
John
John,
Can be very sweet upfront. Finishes off with a peppery bite. Not bad.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
One of my go-to bourbons. Has a bite up front, but the mellow flavors rise pleasantly as the bite subsides. Sweet caramel is very strong. Good, easy to drink bourbon.
 
Carlos
Carlos,
Not as smooth as I expected.

Probably the best tasting rye on the market that is easy to find and for a decent price!

Very basic, standard rye whiskey, nothing to write home about.

Aaron,
Had high hopes for this one but was let down. Very strong antiseptic taste. Not as much rye spice as I would have liked

Madison,
Admittedly, I am new to rye, but this is one I greatly enjoyed. While not featured on the spiral, I swear I tasted chocolate in addition to the nutty flavors that abound. Smooth with an awesome kick of black pepper.
