When you think of Bourbon, you think of Kentucky — some things just go hand-in-hand. Buffalo Trace Old Charter Oak Canadian Oak looks to shift that paradigm. This special bourbon is crafted through the same meticulous process as conventional versions but it’s also infused with flavors sourced from Canada’s vast boreal forest. That landscape stretches from across the whole of the nation, from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. That’s where the wood that Buffalo Trace uses to build the barrels it ages this special bourbon in comes from. The Canadian White Oak is a lot like this spirit. These trees grow slowly because of their cold environment. Just like this special Buffalo Trace bourbon, Canadian White Oaks show that you can’t rush perfection.
The wood of barrels that house the Buffalo Trace Old Charter Oak Canadian Oak bourbon is cultivated from Canadian White Oaks that are about a century old. This gives the bourbon a one-of-a-kind taste with undertones of caramel, berry, vanilla, and syrup. Those special barrels result in an equally special bourbon.
