Buffalo Trace’s Old Charter Oak label offers some of the finest bourbons you can find. The Old Charter Oak Chinkapin Oak Bourbon is the fourth addition to the high-end label, following in the footsteps of its predecessors in sublime fashion. The Chinkapin Oak Bourbon is aged in oak barrels made of staves that were air-dried for two years. That extra level of preparation infuses the bourbon with a distinct, complex taste.
Buffalo Trace Mash #1 receives the benefits of those premium oak barrels by being aged inside of them for nine years before being bottled. That aging process gives the 93 proof bourbon an aromatic nose of cherries and spearmint followed by the rich flavor of botanically-infused honey that gives way to a spicy finish that evens itself out with the taste of dark chocolate. The Old Charter Oak Chinkapin Oak Bourbon builds upon Buffalo Trace’s fledgling label with a complex flavor indicative of the artisanal craftsmanship that goes into each bottle.
