George T. Stagg
Released as part of Buffalo Trace's Antique Collection, this is an extremely hearty whiskey, aged in charred oak barrels for at least 15 years, George T. Stagg Straight Bourbon comes straight out of the barrel, unfiltered and uncut. With a powerful, flavorsome and intense taste, this bourbon is beautifully opened up with a few drops of water, whilst its flavors create an intense maple, oak and woody caramel experience.
Thomas H. Handy
Awarded the title of 'World's Best American Whiskey' at the 2015 World Whiskey Awards, the Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Straight Rye has every right to celebrate. Produced in response to Buffalo Trace fans who sought a more well-aged and barrel strength whiskey, this blend has come out triumphant. It's made from barrels aged for over 6 years and emerges at a heady 126.2 proof. This dark, rich offering carries notes of chocolate, cherry, wood and spice and deliver a long, sweet finish.
The oldest and most mature bottle in Buffalo Trace's Antique Collection, Sazerac's 18 Year Old Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey is an annual statement of intent from the revered Kentucky Distillery. Named after the legendary Sazerac Coffee House, an icon of 1850's New Orleans and birthplace of America's First Cocktail the 'Sazerac', today this rye blend represents the height of quality and complexity. A celebrated Kentucky Whiskey that has been showered with accolades since its inception, Sazerac's 18 Year Old Rye harmoniously synchronizes subtle fruits and demerara to produce a miraculously balanced drink. Bottled at 90 Proof and using a distillate stemming from 1985, this outstanding spirit should be enjoyed in the very best company.
William Larue Weller
Named after William Larue Weller, a legendary Kentucky whiskey maker, Weller bourbons are produced at the Buffalo Trace distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. The William Larue release is part of the Weller antique collection and is almost as hard to find as a rare Pappy. If you can find it, however, you'll be delighted you did. On the nose, scents of pepper, oak, leather and caramel corn bring this spirit alive, whilst the rich palette entry with warming honey notes leads to an explosion of caramel, sauteed almonds, figs and dates. At 134.6 proof, this is not for the faint hearted, but it will reward those bold enough to try it with a very special treat.
