Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection “Rediscovered Barrels,” 1991 vintage, 19 year old, 45%

Price: $47.00 Issue: Summer 2011 Reviewer: John Hansell

Quite bold and crisply spicy. The most palate-piercing of the three. Well defined flavors of cool mint, warming cinnamon, honey-kissed fruit, and caramel. Briskly spicy finish. When I nose this whiskey, it feels like it's brandishing a sword at me and shouting “en garde!”
