Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection
Buffalo Trace’s bourbons are among the most reliable out there: ideal both for sipping on their own and as a core spirit for many a cocktail. In addition to their Single Oak Project work, Buffalo Trace also releases yearly entries in their Experimental Collection, many of which feature several variations on the same theme. In other words, it’s a science experiment that tastes great. 2015 saw the release of whiskeys made using a decades-old (possibly older) “sour mash bourbon” recipe. Two variations, both aged for 13 years, exist: one, which was aged at 105 proof, has a neatly mellow taste, with a smell recalling brown sugar. Its counterpart, aged at 125 proof, has a bolder feel all around: a caramel taste coexists with something smokier, leading to a more complex experience than its counterpart. The two make for a rewarding experience, whether on their own or tasted beside one another.
