Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection Chardonnay Aged Bourbon, 14 year old, 45%

Price: $50.00 Issue: Fall 2007 Reviewer: John Hansell

Aged in French oak chardonnay barrels for eight years after six years in new charred oak. Notes of vanilla, crème brûlée, butterscotch, toasted coconut, bright fruit, and polished oak. Clean, gently sweet finish. The chardonnay oak aging adds a new dimension without dominating. A distinctive, stylish whisky with excellent balance.
