The Latest Addition to the Bourbon World
A Brief History of Buffalo Trace Distillery
Nestled in the heart of Kentucky’s bourbon country, Buffalo Trace Distillery is a famous name among whiskey lovers. Established in 1775, this distillery has a long and storied history behind it. Originally known as Old Fire Copper (due to the fact that they made bullets and cannons for the Revolutionary War), the distillery has been owned and operated by the same family for seven generations.
Today, Buffalo Trace Distillery is responsible for producing some of the best bourbons in the world. From the iconic Buffalo Trace to the popular Eagle Rare, their whiskeys are highly sought after by connoisseurs and novices alike.
The Release of Double Eagle Very Rare Bourbon
As if their lineup couldn’t get any better, Buffalo Trace Distillery recently released a new bourbon that’s causing quite a stir in the whiskey world – Double Eagle Very Rare Bourbon.
This ultra-premium bourbon is the result of combining two separate 20-year-old bourbons that were among the last barrels distilled at the old Stitzel-Weller Distillery before it closed in 1991. After being aged in new charred oak barrels and then married together, the resulting bourbon is rich, complex, and full-bodied.
What makes Double Eagle Very Rare Bourbon even more special is the fact that it’s incredibly limited. Only 299 bottles were produced, each of which comes in a beautifully crafted crystal decanter that’s housed in a luxurious silver presentation box. It’s no wonder that the bourbon is selling for a whopping $2,000 per bottle.
The Tasting Notes
So, what exactly does a $2,000 bourbon taste like? According to the experts at Buffalo Trace Distillery, Double Eagle Very Rare Bourbon boasts a “deep and rich nose of dark fruits, caramel, and vanilla, leading into flavors of cinnamon, tobacco, and toasted oak on the palate.” They also note that the bourbon has a long and luscious finish with a hint of sweetness.
Of course, taste is subjective, so opinions may vary. However, those lucky enough to sample this rare bourbon have generally agreed that it’s a true masterpiece of whiskey-making.
The Importance of Rarity
There’s no denying that part of the allure of Double Eagle Very Rare Bourbon is its rarity. Collectors and enthusiasts alike are willing to pay top dollar for limited-edition bottles that are highly coveted by others in the community.
However, it’s not just about the money or the status symbol. Rarity also adds to the mystique and excitement of whiskey collecting and drinking. When a certain bourbon is only available in limited quantities, it becomes more special and valuable to those who are lucky enough to get their hands on a bottle. It’s a reminder that good things come to those who wait – and sometimes, even then, it’s still a matter of luck and chance.
Whether or not you’re lucky enough to taste Double Eagle Very Rare Bourbon, its release is a testament to the passion and dedication that goes into producing high-quality bourbon. Buffalo Trace Distillery has once again raised the bar in the spirits industry, and we can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
