Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky has announced a new distilled spirits specialty addition to its Experimental Collection of spirits. This newest limited release is a Baijiu style spirit aged in a variety of new American oak casks.
This Experimental Collection Baijiu style spirit, although distilled like a whiskey, is produced using traditional Baijiu ingredients of sorghum and peas. After aging the distillate for 11 years in three separate casks, uncharred, charred and toasted white oak, the spirits were married together and bottled at 90 proof. The nose is rich and savory, with notes of chocolate, dark cherries and stone fruit. The sorghum and peas provide a palate of confection sugar, followed by a sweet toffee finish.
