A limited edition Buffalo Trace bottled from 8 casks filled in May 1993 and then stored next to each other in the warehouse before bottling. It lost almost half its volume over the 17.5 years of its maturation and it looks like an interesting prospect.
A set of three half bottles of white dog (unmatured whiskey) show-casing Buffalo Trace's 3 main spirit recipes.

An interesting insight into the development of whiskey in the cask and an increasingly popular cocktail ingredient.
The Buffalo Trace Single Oak Project is one of the most ambitious releases of whiskey that we've ever seen. 192 different whiskies each made by varying 7 of the elements of the recipe to give a range that shows the effect of each factor: Where in the tree the barrel wood comes from; thickness of wood grain; stave seasoning time; level of char; mash bill; barrel filling proof; and position in the warehouse.
