Just 822 bottles of the 1993 Vintage O.F.C. Bourbon will be released this year, all set in crystal and copper decanters as in previous releases.
Buffalo Trace’s tasting notes for this whiskey describe it as having “a nose of dark cherry, honey, and smoked oak. On the palate, notes of caramel, toasted vanilla, and cocoa are found. For the finish, coffee, maple syrup and oak linger.”
O.F.C. refers to the Old Fashioned Copper Distillery, which sat on the land where Buffalo Trace currently resides in 1870.
“It’s hard to believe that the same year this bourbon was made, in 1993, the world wide web was just becoming a ‘thing,’ and introduced to the public domain,” said master distiller Harlen Wheatley in a press release. “Now when you think of how far everything has come, from a technology standpoint to bourbon’s popularity again, it’s mind blowing. What’s really amazing is how solid this bourbon is, and how the taste and integrity have held up. It’s a real tribute to Elmer and Gary Gayheart and the rest of the team at the Distillery for this vintage to have this consistency and taste this good after aging for 25 years.”
