New Rare Release at Lukas Liquor Superstore
Master’s Collection 2013
Double Malt Selections
What is Woodford Reserve’s “Master’s Collection”?
In the early 1800s, the Woodford County Distillery, thanks to owner Oscar Pepper and Master Distiller James Crow, was the site for landmark discoveries and innovative techniques in bourbon-making.
Pepper and Crow are credited with refining and defining key processes such as sour mashing, yeast propagation, copper pot distillation and the maturing of whiskey in new, charred oak casks. Their work defined bourbon and subsequently rye whiskey as we know them today.
Woodford Reserve Distillery’s Master Collection honors the pioneering work of Pepper and Crow, applying their handcrafted methods to a variety of grain recipes, fermentation styles and maturation processes to create a range of unique whiskeys.
The Story of the Master’s Collection 2013 “Double Malt Selection”
Globally, whiskey is presented in a wide range of flavor profiles, often described as either Old World or New World in style. Old World whisk(e)ys (Scotch, Irish, etc.) typically have a grain-focused flavor profile, and those of the New World (Bourbon, Tennessee, etc.) highlight the impact of new-oak cask maturation.
The Double Malt Selection affords you the rare opportunity for a side-by-side barrel style comparison so you can see and taste the difference for yourself. Both bottles feature a malt recipe spirit that was uniquely triple distilled in Woodford Reserve’s copper pot stills; the primary difference is in their maturation. We like to say that one is ‘grain forward’ and the other more ‘barrel forward.’
