Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection 1989 Barrels, Rediscovered
Buffalo Trace // Kentucky, USA
Released in 2011, this is one of three bottles in the tenth batch from the Experimental Collection by Buffalo Trace. As the name suggests, the theme here is rediscovered barrels. This whiskey is taken from seven barrels that were found hiding on floor two of Warehouse I. They were distilled in November 1989 from an unknown bourbon mash bill with the distill and bottle entry proof unknown (hence the classification of "whiskey" and not "bourbon"). It was aged for twenty-one years and one month in new charred oak. By the time they were found, 75.9% of the contents had evaporated. The barrels were emptied in December 2010 and bottled at 45% ABV.
Other WhiskeyA spirit distilled from a mash of grain(s) at less than 95% ABV, bottled at no less than 40% ABV. The product must have characteristics, taste, and aroma generally attributed to whiskey
