Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection 1995 American Oak Chips Seasoned
Buffalo Trace // Kentucky, USA
Released in 2010, this was one of two bottlings in the eighth batch from the Experimental Collection by Buffalo Trace with a focus on oak variations. This whiskey was made from BT Rye Mash #2, distilled and barreled in April 1995. At the beginning of the aging process, toasted American oak chips were added to the barrel (used, charred white oak) to increase surface contact with the spirit. After fifteen years and four months (and a staggering 54.2% evaporation), the barrel was emptied in August 2010 and bottled at 45% ABV.
