Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection 1995 French Oak Barrel Aged
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. Rather than American oak, BT decided to use French oak that had been air-dried for twenty-four months and then toasted. After fifteen years and three months (and a staggering 69.7% evaporation), the barrel was emptied in July 2010 and bottled at 45% ABV.
