Buffalo Trace Distillery started a project over a decade ago to explore the influence of barrel aging variables on their already top notched bourbon. Using 192 unique sections harvested from 150 year-old oak trees from the Ozarks, this Kentucky whiskey house got serious about pursuing a grand experiment.
The project is now in full swing, with tastings at select locations across the United States. Lucky for us here in San Diego, Buffalo Trace included Starlite on that list and we'll be there for a special tasting next week to kick things off. With a celebrated interior by Bells & Whistles and our favorite Kentucky Colonel in town, we couldn't think of a better spot for this tasting to go down.
Learn more about the Single Oak Project, and look for a recap of the tasting on the Mother Sponge blog next week!
