The latest addition to the famous Kentucky distillery’s bi-annual high-end bottlings continues with a 'chocolate malted rye' bourbon. 70% corn, 15% malted rye and 15% distillers malt make up the mash bill, but the key point of difference here is that the rye has been toasted long enough to make it taste like chocolate. Said Woodford Reserve Master Distiller Chris Morris, “The rye malt was roasted to a level that its natural sugars caramelized into a dark chocolate note. This special bourbon even surprised me as it matured in our warehouses. Each time I tasted it, the chocolate notes became even more pronounced.”

Other reviews... A standout for the sometimes lacking Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection, Chocolate Malted Rye delivers a sip that is flavorful and unique, albeit at a price that can be hard to justify. This year’s fall release of the Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection was a pleasant surprise. Where years past have delivered a hohum result, this year’s version encapsulates an uncommon and satisfying sip. While the bourbon could afford to be a few proof points higher, unless someone is not a fan of chocolate; dark chocolate in particular, most will enjoy the end result. That said, the hundred dollar plus price tag is something to pause over. This is especially true since more bolder chocolatey tasting whiskey alternatives are available for a fraction of the price. This shouldn’t stop individuals from seeking out a pour or a bottle, however individuals should be aware that they’re paying for the time Woodford spent experimenting to achieve this end result versus the actual flavor profile. - breakingbourbon.com
