The Woodford Reserve Mater’s Collection 1838 Style White Corn is the latest and 10th release in the series. It combines innovation and inspiration from distilling industry pioneers Oscar Pepper and Master Distiller James Crow, whom began distilling on the site of our present distillery in 1812.
1838 Style White Corn was created by adjusting the whiskey’s first source of flavor – grain. The use of white corn instead of traditional yellow corn complements additional grains in the whiskey and allows for a sharper whiskey that’s lighter in body with a softer, sweeter, fruit-forward profile.
Color: Light golden honey.
Aroma: Soft and nutty with a malty grain note sweetened with apple fruit, hints of spun sugar, cooked sugar and vanilla. Glimpses of cedar and clove spiciness through a delicate veil of oak smoke.
Flavor: Shortbread and a subtly cool lemon custard note are lightly spiced and dried with a dash of white pepper.
Finish: Long and slightly dry with a lingering sweet, buttery texture.
