21c Selects Buffalo Trace

The 21c Selects program is bringing you an exclusive new way of enjoying Kentucky’s favorite spirits. Our hand-picked barrels have been bottled in limited quantities for our guests to enjoy. You can enjoy these as tasting flights in Lockbox and if you love it, you can go ahead and take a whole bottle home from our museum shop. The Buffalo Trace is a 8 year single barrel, Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey. For those of you who like to be in the know, we’re offering in depth tasting notes of this exclusive selection.

Mash Bill: Mashbill #1 (It’s kinda a secret.  All we know is that it’s high corn and low rye)

Color: Light Amber

Nose: Sweet vanilla /caramel apple, clove, nutmeg, apricots, toasted wood notes

Taste: Med / Med + body, smooth honeyed entry, caramel apple, dried fruits, lightly smoked tea, light leather, toasted nuts

Finish: Med / Med+ length, lingering toasted wood and baking spices and pleasant tea-like astringency

Buffalo Trace is a consistently high rated bourbon by a very highly esteemed distillery. 1 Liter packaging means more bang for the buck by comparison to other 21c Selects. As every good bourbon lover should know, Buffalo Trace produces one product and one product only. It’s just that good. The 21c Selects private barrel program is the only way to get a Single Barrel Buffalo Trace bourbon. Period. “Buffalo Trace is one of those distilleries that consistently produces gorgeous bourbon time and time again.” Says Chea Beckley, Area Beverage Manager at 21c “When we first approached Buffalo Trace, I thought it was an impossible dream to get our hands on a single barrel. We got ourselves a barrel but they still won’t reveal the mashbill. Can’t blame them.”

How should I drink it? Straight up. No need to mess with this one.
