Ultimate rye taste test! From the Masters Collection, the latest release in the Woodford Reserve Rare Rye Selection presents New Cask and Aged Cask, delivered together in individually number bottles for your side-by-side tasting pleasure. The focus is on the huge difference the choice of aging barrels can play in final color and taste (up to 80%, some say). The starting point: 1oo% pot still triple-distilled rye: for New Cask, new American charred oak was used, an approach similar to bourbon; Aged Cask was matured in once-used barrels, similar to Scotch. The dramatically different results are plain to see and taste. Limited edition, 92.4 proof, 2 x 375ml bottles, in a clear-fronted, wooden display case. $99.99.
