Old Charter Oak Bourbon Whiskey

Most bourbons today are produced in American white oak barrels, but Buffalo Trace is trying something new with its new label, Old Charter Oak. The bourbon is aged for 10 years in barrels from trees that were grown in Mongolia, creating a dramatically different flavor profile that is described as full-bodied with a nose of "pecan, caramel and pine" and "notes of cedar, clove, butterscotch and dark chocolate, with a finish of black pepper and smoked oak." 

Bottled at 90 proof, Old Charter Oak is available this month in limited quantities.
