Woodford Reserve Masters Collection Sweet Mash

Country: USA
Region: Kentucky
Type: Bourbon
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 43%
Score: 84 points

This expression was a one-time-only revival of an old “sweet mash” style of producing whiskey last used in the 19th century. The nose is grainy with corn notes, a hint of malt, and blackberry jam. The taste is dry and tart with green apples, berries, and a touch of cinnamon. The finish is lingering and tart with a blackberry pie touch. Very one-dimensional, but still a good lesson in the history of bourbon.
