    For this, the fifth in a series of innovative limited editions by master distiller Chris Morris, triple-distilled Woodford Reserve bourbon—aged over seven years in American white-oak barrels—was "finished" in sugar-maple barrels. This extra aging added a flavor element of maple syrup, a rich, sugary sweetness enhanced by toasted cedar, lemon, and apricot. But the whiskey also became markedly mellower and softer. It could be argued that the use of nontraditional maple wood technically makes this no longer a bourbon, but after a couple of sips, that ceases to be of consequence.
