Pushing the boundaries of whiskey exploration
Whiskey is a drink that has been enjoyed for centuries, and its popularity only seems to be increasing. With so many different types of whiskey available, it can be difficult to know where to start. The answer is to try as many different options as possible, and that is exactly what Buffalo Trace Distillery is doing with its Old Charter Oak series.
Exploring the Old Charter Oak series
The Old Charter Oak series is a range of whiskeys that explore the impact that different oak trees have on the flavor of whiskey. Each release in the series is aged in barrels made from different types of oak, and the result is a unique flavor profile that offers something completely different from other whiskeys on the market. And the latest addition to the series, the Spanish Oak, is no exception.
What makes Spanish Oak special?
Spanish Oak is a type of oak that is found in a number of different countries, including Spain, Portugal, and the United States. But what makes it special is the fact that it is particularly dense and has a high concentration of tannins. This means that it is capable of imparting a rich, complex flavor to the whiskey that is aged in it.
What to expect from Buffalo Trace’s Spanish Oak whiskey
The Buffalo Trace Distillery’s Spanish Oak whiskey is aged for 10 years, during which time it develops a sweet, fruity flavor that is reminiscent of honey, figs, and dates. But there is also a complexity to the flavor profile, with the tannins from the oak offering a slightly bitter note that balances out the sweetness. The result is a whiskey that is smooth and mellow, with just the right amount of complexity to keep things interesting.
Why trying different whiskeys is so important
When it comes to whiskey, there is no one-size-fits-all option. Everyone’s taste preferences are different, and what one person might love, another might not enjoy at all. That is why it is so important to try as many different whiskeys as possible, in order to find the ones that appeal to your palate. And the Old Charter Oak series from Buffalo Trace Distillery is the perfect place to start. With each new release in the series, you get the opportunity to explore the impact that different oak trees have on the flavor of whiskey, and to discover new and unique flavor profiles that you might not have found otherwise.
