Buffalo Trace is unveiling a new O.F.C. Vintage bourbon this fall that was distilled and stored in the warehouse back in 1994--you know, the same year Pulp Fiction was released and O.J. went on his infamous white Ford Bronco chase.
The 25-year-old whiskey is the fourth O.F.C. Vintage release, and comes in a handsome crystal bottle with real copper lettering inlaid in the bottle with a hand-applied paper label. It arrives with a provenance card, packed inside a wooden box.
The O. F. C. vintage-dated bourbons have a name derived from this National Historic Landmark’s original moniker – the O.F.C. Distillery – renowned for producing top-shelf whiskey.
Buffalo Trace's tasting notes for this quarter-century-old whiskey describe "lots of cherry on the nose followed by butterscotch with hints of brown sugar and oak. Toasted caramel, cinnamon and oak greet the palate, followed by a long finish of coffee, herbs and oak."
Last year Buffalo Trace released four O.F.C. bourbons to the public, including vintages from 1985, 1989 and 1990 in the spring, and a 1993 vintage in the fall.
But unsurprisingly, these bottles don't come cheap. Suggested retail pricing for this very limited 1994 O.F.C. Vintage Bourbon is $2,500. More information about the line can be found here.
