US: Buffalo Trace bottles up experimental whiskies

By | 20 April 2006

US-based Buffalo Trace Distillery has decided to bottle some of the 1,500 experimental whisky barrels it has been sitting on for 17 years.
 
A limit of 400 bottles will be released for a number of the experimental ranges, which include unique mash bills, types of wood and barrel toasts.

The first three barrels, French Oak, Twice Barreled and Fire Pot Barrel, will constitute the beginning of more periodic releases, together know as the Buffalo Trace "Experimental Collection."

Buffalo Trace's master distiller Harlen Wheatley said: "It is very exciting to finally be able to offer these whiskies to our consumers. We love to push the envelope of whiskey making by exploring different ideas and methods we've never tried before."

The Kentucky distiller's collection will be packaged in 375ml bottles and retail for around US$46.35 each.

Brand manager Kris Comstock said: "Each of these whiskies is unlike anything I've ever tasted. Any whiskey drinker will appreciate the differences between these experiments and other whiskies."
