I saw a great article on seriouseats today that is worth linking to here. The write-up highlights new whiskey offerings for 2010 from Buffalo Trace, Knob Creek, and Woodford Reserve, all favorites at bourbonhours.com. The author highlights a bottling from Buffalo Trace’s Antique Collection William Larue Weller, a wheated bourbon:
The sample I tried at Whiskyfest was bottled at 126.6 proof, and had a huge, sweet aroma of brown sugar and orchard fruit, and an extraordinarily gentle flavor (especially considering the proof) of maple syrup, apple cider and fresh peaches. Truly a phenomenal bourbon.
