BUFFALO TRACE DISTILLERY RELEASES THE 2007 ANTIQUE COLLECTION
Fall is here and so is the Buffalo Trace Distillery 2007 Antique Collection. The collection this year will feature five limited-release whiskies of various ages, recipes and proofs.
Sazerac Rye 18 year old
Two time winner of the “American Whiskey of the Year” award, the whiskey for the 2007 release has been aging in Warehouse K on the first floor. The first floor enables the barrels to age slowly and gracefully. This vintage has the same mature spicy taste as years past.
Eagle Rare 17 Year Old
These barrels were distilled in the spring of 1988 and have been aging in Warehouse C. This bourbon was actually 19 years old at the time of bottling giving it a delicate body with a dry woody finish.
George T. Stagg
This vintage of George T. Stagg was found on the first floor of Warehouse I. This bourbon was distilled back in the spring of 1992 and weighs in at a healthy 144.8 proof—the strongest ever! This whiskey is big and rich and not for the faint of heart!
William Larue Weller
William Larue Weller is the Antique Collection’s uncut, unfiltered wheat recipe bourbon. The barrels were aged 10 years on the ninth floor of Warehouse I. This year’s William Larue Weller registers at 117.9 proof. It tastes of sweet molasses with a hint of cinnamon.
Thomas H. Handy Sazerac
Handy is the newest addition to the Antique Collection. It is an uncut and unfiltered straight rye whiskey. The barrels were aged six years and five months on the fifth floor of Warehouse L with a proof of 134.8. It’s very flavorful with bold allspice and a hint of sweet ginger.
The Antique Collection continues to be greatly anticipated by whiskey fans and grows in popularity each year. Last year’s show-stopper was the newly introduced Thomas H. Handy Sazerac uncut and unfiltered straight rye whiskey which flew off store shelves in a matter of weeks. All the whiskies of the Antique Collection are a limited release and a new vintage each year.
“It is our extreme pleasure to offer these rare and unique whiskeys. We are very proud of all the whiskeys we produce here at Buffalo Trace and these are some of the best,” said Kris Comstock, Bourbon Brand Manager of Buffalo Trace Distillery.
The Antique Collection will be available in late October. For more information visit www.greatbourbon.com or contact Kris Comstock at firstname.lastname@example.org or (502) 696-5936.
