Woodford Reserve’s 2021 Master’s Collection release has finally shown up: Woodford Reserve Five-Malt Stouted Mash, a single malt release that is designed to be “a whiskey that exhibits the flavors of a classic beer.” It’s not made from beer but rather, as the name suggests, five malts mixed up, fermented, and distilled — though I’m unclear what makes it “stouted” aside from the choice of malts.
Bottle Size: 750ml
In the 1830s, the Woodford County distillery was the setting for a series of discoveries and innovative practices that today define the bourbon industry. For this 2021 Master's Collection release Master Distiller Chris Morris and Assistant Master Distiller, Elizabeth McCall have drawn upon that rich history and their own interests for inspiration.
In Kentucky, a fermented grain mash is traditionally called 'distiller's beer.' Distillation converts this 'beer' into a spirit that will become a 'Whiskey' once barreled.
This Master's Collection is their take on crafting a spirit that exhibits the flavors of a classic beer style, in this case a rich, roasted malty stout.
"Our distillery building was constructed by Irish stonemasons in 1838. That, plus the fact that we distill in the 'Irish' style with triple pot stills inspired us to mash and distill an Irish style stout beer." - Elizabeth McCall
The result is the Fall 2021 Master's Collection release named Five-Malt Stouted Mash, a rich and darkly robust expression of Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Malt Whiskey.
