Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection French Oak Aged, 10 year old, 45%

Price: $50.00 Issue: Winter 2006 Reviewer: John Hansell

Aged in French oak barrels, in which the staves were air-dried for 24 months. Incredibly rich notes of caramel, chewy toffee, and maple syrup. All this sweetness is balanced nicely by firm, polished oak, and the whiskey is kept lively with delicate candied fruit and crisp mint. Dry, elegant finish.
