With the recent resurgence of Bourbon, America’s signature whiskey, Rye whiskey has also experienced a major resurgence.  This year’s sixth release of the Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection begins arriving in stores this week.  It includes dual 375ml bottles – one that has been matured in a new charred cask and one matured in an aged cask.  Both are from a 100% rye recipe but the difference in the final product is the manner of maturation.
