The 105 Proof Warehouse L Release, part of the Single Oak Project Bourbon, is the distillery's sixth varietal in the ongoing programme. The distillery said yesterday (1 August) it expects to have 192 separate releases by the end of 2015, each aged in slightly different circumstances.

“This Single Oak Project experiment is a rare occasion for whiskey connoisseurs to be heard, offer their expertise, and help develop the next great Bourbon,” said Buffalo Trace's brand manager Kris Comstock.

The Bourbons are aged in casks from 96 trees and stored for at least eight years in two different warehouses. Some use a rye recipe while others use a wheat one. Two different proofs – 105 and 125 – are used to further increase the variables. 

Varietals are being made available online at a suggested retail price of US$46.35 per 37.5 bottle.

The Single Oak Project was started in 1999.
