Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection Fine Grain Oak
Buffalo Trace // Kentucky, USA
Released in 2009, this is one of two bottles from the sixth batch of the Experimental Collection by Buffalo Trace. This edition is part of a pair of releases that play with the coarseness of the wood grain used in the barrels. Slow growing trees create a fine grain wood; fast growing create coarse grain wood. This bourbon was made from BT Rye Mash #2, distilled in July 1994 and barreled into a fine grain oak cask at a #4 char. After fourteen years and nine months (and 51% evaporation), the barrel was emptied in May 2009 and bottled at 45% ABV.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
