Excerpt: The fact that the mashbill could easily be turned into a heavily malted bourbon and that it was aged in a new charred oak barrel, helps make this a great introduction into American malt whiskey.

Produced using a 51% malt mashbill, the combination of recipe and new charred oak in Woodford's Malt whiskey promises a unique drinking experience - especially for drinkers used to Woodford's standard offerings.
Musty and funky. A bit of brown sugar, some toffee, clove and pepper. Earthy with a hint of dirt, oak and tobacco.
Malty and musty, the malt is dominant. Wet cardboard, musty grass and leaves. Some cocoa and brown sugar.
Short finish. A bit hot. Musty and malty with a good deal of wet grass, musty cardboard and young whiskey notes.
This offering is one that perhaps tints the Woodford image a bit. The malt isn't particularly well integrated and the youth is hard to ignore. Stick with the others.
