This bourbon from Buffalo Trace's Experiential Collection is made from a six-grain mashbill: corn, buckwheat, brown rice, sorghum, wheat, and rye. Eight barrels were filled for this release with the whiskey resting for 7 years and 1 month before bottling. The whiskey is organic as all the grains used are certified organic. The whiskey is sold at 90 proof and as is the case with all of the Experimental Collection whiskeys, is available in a 375ml sized bottle.

Tasting Notes

"Fruit notes shine on the nose, particularly cherry along with the standard hint of vanilla. Barrel spices are plentiful and pleasant. The whiskey smells yeasty and sweet. As you taste, the rye notes seem to stand out a bit more than the other players with a tangy flavor overall. There's a waxy quality to the whiskey and a more bitter than sweet ending to the dram. Interesting from an experimental standpoint and best to purchase for a whiskey tasting meant to share with others."
