Woodford Reserve Five Malt was released in June 2016 as part of the brand's Distillery Series, a collection of small batch expressions available for purchase at the distillery in Kentucky. Distilled from a malt mash, hence the name, the whiskey ages with "minimal wood exposure" in recycled "double-oaked barrels" for at least 6 months. It comes in 375ml bottlings, at 45.2% ABV.
Color: Pale Honey.
Aroma: Rich malty coffee, caramel and chocolate notes lightly spiced with anise.
Taste: Toasted malt with traces of coffee, caramel, vanilla, and soft oak explode with a burst of honeycomb sweetness.
Finish: Long warming malt notes with a hint of coffee linger on.
