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.
