Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection French Oak Aged
Buffalo Trace // Kentucky, USA
Released in 2006, this was one of three barrels in the inaugural series of experimental whiskeys released by Buffalo Trace. This bourbon was made from BT Rye Mash #1, 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 brought to a #3 char. Only one barrel was filled. After ten years (and 39% evaporation), the barrel was emptied in February 2006 and bottled at 45% ABV. Note: This is sold in 375ml sized bottles.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
