Over two decades ago Buffalo Trace began experimenting. Since then Buffalo Trace has more than 5,000 experimental barrels of whiskey now aging in its warehouses. Each of the barrels has unique characteristics and experimental changes in the mash bill, types of wood, barrel toasts and more. Periodically, an experimental whiskey is bottled and sold on a limited basis.
The taste profile for each experiment is uniquely its own depending on the mash bill, wood type, barrel treatment, warehouse environment and age.

“Buffalo Trace is conducting thousands of different experiments (including some at their experimental micro-distillery), many of them groundbreaking. More importantly, whiskey enthusiasts get to taste them on an ongoing basis.”
