Woodford Reserve Unveils Latest Distillery Series Expression: Frosty Four Wood

Woodford Reserve’s Innovation Shines Through Latest Distillery Series Release

Woodford Reserve has announced its latest Distillery Series expression, Frosty Four Wood. Unveiled in July 2015, the Distillery Series is Woodford Reserve’s latest line of complex offerings available for purchase at the Woodford Reserve Distillery and select Kentucky retailers. The series showcases Woodford Reserve’s continued commitment to providing an unmatched whiskey experience and leading the spirits industry through innovation and craftsmanship.

Following the 2015 release of Double Double Oaked and Sweet Mash Redux, Frosty Four Wood brings to life Woodford Reserve’s creativity and dexterity. Developed and perfected by Master Distiller Chris Morris, Frosty Four Wood is a unique batching of mature Woodford Reserve bourbon, aged in American Oak and finished in barrels made from Maple Wood, Sherry Wood and Port. The original Four Wood whiskey, the 2012 Master’s Collection release, was exposed to record-low temperatures during the 2013 Polar Vortex, resulting in flocking, or mineral precipitation. Filtration techniques produced a more fruit-forward whiskey with maple hints.

Frosty Four Wood is the last of a historic whiskey specialty, as the original Four Wood was the first of its kind to touch four different barrels,” said Woodford Reserve Master Distiller Chris Morris. “It represents a rare moment that extends beyond bourbon and amplifies current flavors found in Woodford Reserve.”

Frosty Four Wood is presented at 90.4 proof with a suggested retail price of $49.99 for a 375ml bottle. The Distillery Series expressions are small-batch offerings ranging from finished whiskies to straight bourbons and other unique spirits.

Tasting Notes for Frosty Four Wood:

Color: Rich orange honey.

Aroma: Full, with rich holiday spice notes and a dried fruit medley (fig, raisin, dried cherry, dried apricot) character with hints of maple syrup and coffee.

Flavor: Warm and full-bodied with dried fruit character that layers over a nutty, spicy range of honeyed oak and maple syrup.

Finish: Long, warm, and spicy.

The Palm Springs Life Festival (www.palmspringslifefestival.com) today announced the launch of the first season of the premier cultural arts and lifestyle event in the Coachella Valley to be presented by Palm Springs Life magazine and IMG Artists and produced by Barrett Wissman, the Chairman of IMG Artists. The inaugural festival will feature a stellar lineup of some of today’s top artists, fashion designers and culinary superstars.

I think it’s a real opportunity for Southern California to have an independent festival that can bring many art forms together from music, to fashion, to the culinary world. To have a first season that includes luminaries such as Plácido Domingo, Cat Cora, Renée Fleming, and Zandra Rhodes is inspiring,” said Wissman, Executive Producer of the Palm Springs Life Festival and Chairman of IMG Artists.
