    BTEC 19 and 23 yo French Oak Aged Bourbons

    Anybody else see this? http://www.buffalotracedistillery.co...asp?newsid=182

    Hefty price tag, but looks very interesting. Set to be released in September.

    Edit: I guess technically this isn't bourbon . . .

    If they're in charred new oak, it can technically be classified as bourbon. Our regulations don't require a specific type of oak, nor that the barrel be a certain size.

    Okay, that's right. I was thinking it had to be American oak, but I see that's not a requirement in the CFR. The press release doesn't say whether it was new oak, but it uses "whiskey" and "American whiskey" a few times, rather than bourbon. The only reference to bourbon is with regard to the mashbill. Either way, sounds like a cool experiment.

    Entry proof is too high (>125) to be bourbon.

    Ahh, I stand corrected.

    Very interesting, thanks for the link. I have yet to spring for a BTEC, but the description tempts me. 90pf and chillfiltered, eh? Eh.

    Between the price and the proof, I don't see any reason to even consider buying these "experiments"

    I'm sure they'll sell out; sounds a little more appealing than rice or oats.

    I'll pass unless one shows up on smokinjoe's dining room table.

    Sounds interesting, but with so much coming out in the fall...

    Doubtful.

    Bingo

    On the surface it sounds good but those two points didn't go over well with me.
