Buffalo Trace Releases A 1994 Vintage Old Fashion Copper Bourbon

Dating all the way back to 1773, Kentucky’s Buffalo Trace is one of the most celebrated distilleries on the planet, having won more than 500 awards including recent “2nd and 3rd finest whiskeys in the world” titles. The latest liquid-gem to come from the renowned Frankfort-based operation is their O.F.C. (Old Fashion Copper) 1994 Vintage Bourbon. To convey just how long this ultra-fine Bourbon has been aging; when this wildly-elite whiskey was distilled a quarter-of-a-century-ago, the internet was in its infancy, Grunge was dominating the fashion world, and the billboard charts were occupied by the likes of Celine Dion, Ace of Base, and Boyz II Men.

In 2016, BTD released a trio of Bourbons with vintages from ’85, ’89, and ’90, which were auctioned off for charity and brought in well over $1M. Unlike those ridiculously prestigious bottles, the new ’94 run is being made available to the general public with 1,085 1994 O.F.C. Vintage Bourbon units up for grabs at a cost of $2,500 apiece. The world-class Bourbon whiskey reportedly carries notes of cherry, brown sugar, and butterscotch on the nose, followed by a toasted caramel, cinnamon, and oak body with a hint of coffee and herbs in the finish. Just like with previous O.F.C. Vintage releases, this 1994 Bourbon comes in a crystal bottle — decorated with real inlaid copper lettering and a hand-applied and individually-numbered label — housed in a polished rotating cylindrical woodgrain display box that also features a provenance card.
