Woodford Reserve just released a limited-edition bottle as part of its annual Distillery Series, the new Toasted Oak Oat Grain.
A statement from the distiller explained that the new expression is made of fully-matured Woodford Reserve Oat Grain Bourbon, which is then finished in a second barrel that’s been heavily toasted.
The result brings a topaz-colored whiskey that features aromas of of clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg that meld with tastes of citrus and dark chocolate.

“Experimenting with new ways of making Woodford Reserve is one of my favorite parts of my job,” said Woodford’s Master Distiller Chris Morris. “It allows us to explore new flavors with our bourbon.”
Toasted Oak Oat Grain is part of Woodford Reserve’s Distillery Series, which Morris said was created to push Woodford Reserve’s creative boundaries of whiskeys to the extreme.
Each selection by Morris and Assistant Master Distiller Elizabeth McCall is available for purchase at the Woodford Reserve Distillery and at limited Kentucky retailers. There are three annual releases of the Distillery Series.
Toasted Oat Oak Grain is available in 375ml bottles at 90.4 proof and comes with a suggested retail price of $59.99.
