For ten years, this bourbon aged and matured in Canadian Oak barrels at Buffalo Trace Distillery. The long, cold winters and mild summers of Canada’s northern climate make Canadian Oak uniquely suited to crafting exceptional bourbon. This distinctive environment leads to a tighter-grained wood that releases more of its signature oak aromatics while allowing the spirit to be aged longer in the barrel. The finished spirit features a nose of caramel and berries, a palate of vanilla and maple syrup, and a long finish with hints of oak, chocolate and pepper. Raise a glass to the storied forests of our northern neighbors and enjoy this spirit’s journey from acorn to oak to barrel to bourbon.

This bourbon earned much of its character while aging for nine years in special barrels made from Chinkapin Oak trees. Prior to being assembled into barrels, the oak staves from these tall trees air-dried for two years, far longer than the industry-standard three months. As the bourbon matured at Buffalo Trace Distillery, the flavors from the oak became more complex, developed by the climate and changing seasons. The result is a bourbon uniquely shaped by the barrel, with notes of cherries and spearmint, a palate of fresh herbs and honey, with a finish of warm baking spices and dark chocolate.

A complex, well-balanced nose that shows both dry, peppery notes and a rich honey sweetness. The palate features some tingly spice notes and mellow toffee, very long and very satisfying finish.

This bourbon is aged for ten years in oak barrels made from trees harvested in East Asia. An oak that takes root where many other trees cannot, Quercus mongolica is heralded for its ability to strengthen the earth beneath it, survive drought, and thrive in full sun. This bourbon honors the fortitude of those proud oaks. From the forests of Mongolia, these mighty oaks became the barrels in which this whiskey matured.
Mongolian Oak delivers a nose of pecan, caramel and pine. Sip this bourbon and discover notes of cedar, clove, butterscotch and dark chocolate, with a finish of black pepper and smoked oak.

Aged twelve years at Buffalo Trace Distillery, this bourbon is rich and sweet, drawing its character from barrels made of French Oak. An oak that has long been used for aging the world’s finest wine, the tighter grain of French Oak impart more subtle flavors and a silkier texture than its American counterpart. Harvested from the forests of France, the oak barrels that aged this unique bourbon whiskey are honored with each sip. So enjoy this tribute to the French Oak and raise a glass to its storied journey from the forest, to the barrel, to bourbon.
Tasting notes for the French Oak describe it as having a nose of vanilla with hints of apricot, cherry, and rose petal. The palate is a thick and creamy maple syrup, with the oak flavor coming through. A long finish of chocolate and toasted oak round it out.
