NEW RELEASE: 2024 Woodford Reserve Distillery Series “Toasted Bourbon”

Woodford Reserve Distiller Series "Toasted Bourbon"

MAY 21, 2024 (VERSAILLES, KY) — Today, Woodford Reserve released a new limited-edition bottle as part of its annual Distillery Series – Toasted Bourbon.

Created By Chance

In 2017, Woodford Reserve Double Oaked barrels were accidentally delivered to the distillery and filled with new-make bourbon distillate.

Unlike standard bourbon barrels, which are lightly toasted and heavily charred, the Double Oaked barrels are heavily toasted and lightly charred.

After 18 barrels were filled, the distillery team noticed they had the wrong barrel. But Master Distiller Elizabeth McCall had an idea – keep the barrels and see how the whiskey matured.


  • AGE: Placed in toasted barrels 2017. More than 6 years per the brand.
  • PROOF: 90.4 proof (45.2 abv)
  • PRICE: $64.99 per 375ml
  • AVAILABILITY: At Woodford Reserve Distillery (May 21) and at KY Retailers.

They were moved to historic Warehouse C where the flavor development was closely monitored for more than six years. This was a great opportunity to learn how Woodford Reserve’s bourbon distillate matures in a heavily toasted and lightly charred barrel.

“Toasted Bourbon resulted in a delicious whiskey that blends the flavor profile of both Woodford Reserve’s Bourbon and Double Oaked” McCall said. “After more than six years of patiently waiting, we’re thrilled to share this one-of-a-kind bourbon with our fans.”
