Perhaps it is the name, maybe it is the image of sitting while sipping and watching the sun set. Regardless of the actual reason, Buffalo Trace has the uncanny ability to make one hum the lyrics to Home on the Range. Fortunately for all of us who are quasi musically inclined, the Old Charter Oak French Oak arrives just in time for summer late night sessions. It is made from the same mash bill that was used during the creation of the coveted classics Eagle Rare, Colonel E.H. Taylor, and George T. Stagg.
Aged 12 years and bottled at 92 proof, the Buffalo Trace Old Charter Oak French Oak first fires and then pleasantly dulls the senses. The use of French oak barrels over American oak gives the bourbon a silkier texture and a more subtle flavor. Hints of vanilla and apricot, coupled with rose petals, maple syrup, chocolate, and of course toasted oak create a delightful complexity that your taste buds are sure to enjoy. The French Oak is now available at select retailers for your sipping pleasure.
