The Last Drop Buffalo Trace 1982
70cl+5cl 45% abv
Part of the 'Extremely Rare' range from The Last Drop Distillers, this single cask Kentucky Straight Bourbon was distilled at the Buffalo Trace distillery in 1982 and filled to a virgin charred white oak barrel where it matured for at least 18 years. Discovered years later by The Last Drop Distillers, this parcel of bourbon produced just 44 bottles at a strength of 45% abv in 2018. Each bottle is accompanied by a 5cl miniature, a custom-made stopper, a luxury tasting book and a signed certificate of authenticity, all presented in a luxury leather case.Drew Mayville, Buffalo Trace Master Distiller, described this release: 'The nose is nothing short of exquisite. Its seductive softness is accented by a rich toffee-like, honeyed vanilla, and candied ripe fruits with undertones of oak. Sophisticated with an extraordinary richness and butteriness with layers of apple, pecans, ripened pear, dark Belgian chocolate, caramel and a kiss of black cherries. This remarkable whiskey transitions to a memorable finish of dried dark fruit with delightful lingering oak. All the time knowing that you're tasting history as you enjoy the last drops. This truly is a once in a lifetime taste experience.'
Buffalo Trace is one of the oldest and most renowned distilleries in Kentucky, winning countless award including Distiller of the Year a record five times. Over 110,000 barrels are produced at the distillery every year.
