French Oak Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
This new Old Charter Oak French Oak is the second release in the Buffalo Trace’s bourbon series and is the result of the distillery acquiring a small number of barrels from France in 2007. This new Old Charter Oak French Oak is the result of the distillery acquiring a small number of barrels from France in 2007. These barrels, crafted from oak harvested from the forests of France, were filled with Mash #1, the same recipe used to make Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare, and a number of other bourbons. The nature of French oak imparts more subtle, silky flavors than its American counterpart as a result of its tighter grain. Aged for 12 years this bourbon is bottled at 92 proof. French Oak is bottled in an elegant glass vial with a cork finish. Each bottle displays an oak medallion of the Charter Oak tree.

About the brand
The Old Charter brand was established in 1874 by Adam and Benjamin Chapeze, brothers operating under the name A. B. Chapeze, who were operating a distillery on the Bardstown branch of the L&N Railroad. Ben Chapeze traveled and pushed the brand and made it well known while his brother Adam managed the operation. Eventually sales were assigned under contract to Wright & Taylor, a Louisville wholesale house operated by John J. Wright and Marion E. Taylor. In 1933, the Bernheim distillery acquired the Old Charter Brand and all of its bourbon stock from Wright & Taylor, but did not start selling the brand using that stock until the stock was fully aged for bond in 1937. Wright and Taylor also used the Old Charter brand name for their remaining pre-prohibition bourbon stock. In 1937, the two majority owners of Bernheim, Gerngross and Schwarzhaupt, sold out to Schenley Distilleries. The brand names sold at that time included Old Charter, Cascade, and Echo Springs. In 1974, the 1,000,000th barrel of Old Charter was bottled and a case was given by the Governor of Kentucky (Wendell Ford) to the Governor of Texas (Dolph Briscoe) as a gift. In 1987, United Distillers acquired Schenley. In 1999, the Old Charter brand was purchased by the Sazerac Company from Diageo.

The nose is hot like a barrel evidence however the mouthfeel...I hate to utilize the term smooth its like warm margarine. Greasy and rich. At the point when you move beyond the warmth the nose is graham wafer and a zest rack. The sense of taste makes it understood this didnt simply sit in a scorched American barrel. Profoundly pleasant on itts own. Dont have with a stogie. Simply drink it and appreciate the soul.
