After 25 years in the making, the Buffalo Trace 1994 vintage O.F.C. Bourbon Whiskey is finally about to hit shelves come late November. The fourth release in the Buffalo Trace Old Fashioned Copper series, this vintage bourbon bears the name of a distillery that has become recognized as a National Historic Landmark for the legacy it built crafting quintessential Kentucky bourbon. This latest release embodies its namesake by harnessing generations of expertise which have culminated in a spirit worthy of its place on the top shelf.
This Buffalo Trace vintage bourbon achieves the confluence of a complex bouquet of flavors. Its aromatic tart cherry nose awakens the palate to be soothed by the warmth of a deep butterscotch flavor profile accented by notes of brown sugar and oak. Those rich flavors subside in the wake of a botanical finish that reaches a palate-cleansing coffee aftertaste. This makes each sip taste like the first without any lingering effect that obfuscates a harmony of flavors that has taken a quarter of a century to perfect.
