Woodford Reserve Classic Malt is part of the "Double Malt Selection", which was the eighth expression in the Woodford Master’s Collection series.
The release comprised two whiskies: Woodford Reserve Classic Malt and Woodford Reserve Straight Malt Whiskey. Both expressions were made exclusively from malted barley and then triple distilled through the traditional, copper-pot stills at Woodford.
Following distillation, Woodford Reserve Classic Malt was aged for nine years in casks that were formerly used to mature bourbon. These types of casks are traditionally used to mature Scotch, and contribute notes of buttered bread, strawberries and vanilla to the whisky. In addition, these casks give the whiskey a long, malty finish.
