The new Old Charter Oak French Oak is the second release in the Buffalo Trace’s bourbon series. It is aged twelve years at Buffalo Trace Distillery, this bourbon is rich and sweet, drawing its character from barrels made of French Oak. An oak that has long been used for aging the world’s finest wine, the tighter grain of French Oak impart more subtle flavors and a silkier texture than its American counterpart. This realease is the result of the distillery acquiring a small number of barrels from France in 2007. Harvested from the forests of France, the oak barrels that aged this unique bourbon whiskey are honored with each sip.
