Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection – Organic 6 Grain Whiskey

In Whisky by Whisky MonsterLeave a Comment

Country: USA – Kentucky
Distillery: Buffalo Trace
Type: Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Cask: 6 months air dried level 4 charred white oak
Age: 7 years 1 month
ABV: 45%
Proof: 90

Nose: Herbal and spicy. Buckwheat has bigger impact than I have imagined. Definitely fresh and refreshing.
Palate: Has a subtle character. No edges, honeycomb, a little bit pepper heat, vanilla, oak spices.
Finish: Sweet and short. Mash bill with 6 grains created a mixed character here. Lacking character.

Since 2006 Buffalo Trace Distillery has been releasing experimental whiskies. We have just received one of the 2017 releases, namely Organic 6 Grain Whiskey.

This Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection bottle investigated a distinct mash bill of six grains; corn, buckwheat, brown rice, sorghum, wheat, and rice. All six grains received organic certification, and the production method at Buffalo Trace Distillery, including distillation, processing, and bottling was organically certified. Aged in eight new charred white oak barrels, after resting in Warehouse H for seven years and one month, the whiskey was chill filtered and bottled at 90 proof.

It has slight herbal tones and other myriad of flavors, heavy wood tannins and earthy notes with a spicy aftertaste round out this comprehensive flavor. The complexity of this bourbon is precisely the intent and doesn’t lean on any dimensions.

I believe that BUffalo Trace Experimental Collection is a real gem for any bourbon lovers seeking an adventure on taste and aroma profiles.
