It has long been accepted that barrels aging in different warehouse locations experience their own unique microenvironment. This experiment examined how that environment affects bourbon flavor profile of the Buffalo Trace Wheat Bourbon Mash Bill. Barrels were constructed in the exact same way, filled on the same day with the same recipe, and then aged in Warehouse K on three different floors. After 12 years, the results were tasted.
12 Year Old Wheated Bourbon from Floor #5: Bourbon from Floor 5 has an aroma full of herbal notes. The mouth has savory flavors of cooked cinnamon and clove that are balanced with a presence of caramel and butterscotch. The finish is quite and smooth and balanced.
