Released in 2007, this was part of the second batch of experimental whiskeys released by Buffalo Trace. This bourbon was made from BT Rye Mash #1, distilled and barreled in April 1988. After ten years and four months in new, charred American oak, BT moved the spirit to a medium-toasted American oak ex-zinfandel barrel in August 1998. After aging for a total of eighteen years (and 34.17% evaporation), the barrel was emptied in February 2007 and bottled at 45% ABV. Note that this was a bourbon before it went into the ex-zin cask. Under the TTB's interpretation of the law at the time, wine cask finished bourbon had to be labeled as "whiskey."
