Finally… a Wheat Whiskey comes to the Woodford portfolio, and it’s about time. 

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. 

Woodford is famous for their Bourbon. But they have produced a Rye and Malt Whiskey before — and done a mighty good job of it, too. The missing piece? Obviously, a Wheat Whiskey. And as you have likely guessed, that is a missing piece no longer. Woodford Reserve Wheat Whiskey is their newest release at 52% wheat, 20% corn, 20% malt, and 8% rye as formulated by maser distiller Chris Morris. And while there is no age statement, we know it qualifies as a Straight Whiskey and is bottled at a tasty 45.2% ABV — every drop comprised of solid Woodford quality.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Jerry
Jerry,
not horrible just not the Woodford reserve quality I am use to
 
Troy
Troy,
Well for a long-awaited wheated bourbon, it's pretty much a "new coke." The mash bill is not an improvement by the addition of wheat - overall it's a far lesser bourbon when compared to the standard Woodford bourbon offering.

Smooth taste

Drinks like water. Light sweet apple and mint.
 
Will
Will,
Excellent! Perfect amount of sweet and spice. Very easy to drink. Lose flavor profile almost immediately with ice. Drink neat or use whiskey stone if enjoy chilled. Personally get somewhat of a cherry/cinnamon note on nose. Initial taste get small amount of cinnamon spice then sweet frosting and then more oak on finish. First try of wheat heavy whiskey. Will keep this one in bar.

Justin
Justin,
Fantastic. Just the right amount of cinnamony bite in the front and a great honey-coconut finish.
 
Paul
Paul,
This bourbon is really ok. It was not as smooth as I expected for a wheated bourbon. The double oaked Woodford Reserve is better.

Great product for the price and accessibility. Heavy drink, perfect with a steak or cigar.

Woodford has one upped its Distillery brothers and sisters. Always keep it for company and special occasions. There simply isn’t any better out there at any price.
 
Todd
Todd,
My everyday go to. Smooth with a great finish. I am a rookie so I am sampling a lot in the $25 to $50 range. So far this is one I have to have on the shelf
 
Nick
Nick,
Pleasant spice with a slightly familiar taste to the double oaked, while still being quite different. Love both and would recommend picking either one or both up.

A little bit too spicey for me
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Love this bourbon! I'm finding that I am a wheated bourbon type of guy and this one nestles into my flavor profile quite nicely. So good for such a good price! It is starting to become my go to.
Christopher
Christopher,
I'm with you on the wheats. They are really coming out to be sweet, but not too sweet, and counter the rye spices. I just tried this one today from Flaviar, but after trying one here called Journeyman Corsets Whips and Whiskey, I had to buy two more! Love these high wheat profiles!

Pleasantly surprised...does not disappoint! I didn't know what to expect, but was pleased by this smooth and complex, inexpensive whisky. Definitely check it out! I will be buying it again.

Dustin,
Not Weller but tastes great especially for the price point and it’s not nearly as hard to find as Weller! Go buy a bottle and you won’t be disappointed!

Thomas
Thomas,
I’ll update my review after my second glass but my initial take isn’t stellar. Don’t let the “wheat whiskey” fool you into thinking you’ve found Weller. It’s a pseudo sweeter, slightly thinner, less ideal version of regular Woodford. The saving grace is Regular Woodford is good. The nose has cherries on it. I guess it’s the apple and the mint. But as you drink you get a fake cherry taste. The finish carries it through. It’s not great, IMO. Put your money elsewhere.
Troy
Troy,
Agreed!
Michael
Michael,
I enjoyed the taste, but was a little 'thin' in texture and 'sharp' on finish. I would purchase again, but different experiences/opinions help, I hope.
