In December of 2007, Buffalo Trace filled one new barrel with Buffalo Trace’s wheat mash recipe at 114 proof and after four years of aging in Warehouse C, the barrel was removed. The bourbon was then cut with water to lower it down to 100 proof, and then put back into the same barrel and allowed to age another eight years in the same warehouse. The nose is sweet and floral, with notes of oak, vanilla, and leather. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Taste is a pleasing balance of butterscotch, honey, and wood with a crisp finish.
