Buffalo Trace Distillery began experimenting with recipes and barrel treatments more than two decades ago. Currently there are more than 2,000 experimental barrels of whiskey aging in its warehouses. Each of the barrels has unique characteristics and experimental changes in the mash bill, types of wood, barrel toasts and more. Periodically, an experimental whiskey is bottled and sold on a limited basis. For more information visit www.buffalotracedistillery.com
The taste profile for each experiment is uniquely its own depending on the mash bill, wood type, barrel treatment, warehouse environment and age.
