Over 5,000 barrels are aging at Buffalo Trace's Warehouse X and occasionally they will bottle and release their experiments. This bottling, released in 2016, was created using barrels made by the Independent Stave Co. They were created like their other standard barrels for Buffalo Trace, but prior to charring, the barrels were exposed to infrared light waves. This bottling underwent short & medium wave frequency at 60% power for 30 minutes. It was then given a level #1 char before the whiskey entered the barrel. This is a limited edition bottling of 4 barrels. It is sold in 375ml sized bottles.

Tasting Notes

"Caramel and butterscotch greet the nose and palate with tart apples, lemon, and toasted corn cereal. Creamy vanilla, toffee, and rye bread emerge with cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and a faint whiff of potpourri. The finish is a bit hot and short, though a large ice cube draws it out longer and tempers the sweetness. "
