The Experimental Collection from Buffalo Trace is a project that began at the distillery in 1987. The resulting whiskies are released once a year - the first batch, released in 2006, included Twice Barreled bourbon whisky and one made in a Fire Pot Barrel.
 
Buffalo Trace Experimental Oat Bourbon Whisky is one of five released in 2011. The whisky for this batch was distilled in 2002 and put in the barrel on 30 April of the same year.
 
The recipe used to make this bourbon whisky makes it very unusual. Corn, malted barley and oats make up the mashbill (typical ingredients for bourbon whisky are malted barley, rye, wheat and corn - oats are a break-from-the-norm). Once distilled and put in the barrel it was aged for nine years and five months.
 
Buffalo Trace Experimental Oat Bourbon Whiskey is very different. The distillery describes the taste as smokey and "earthy". It is more than that, though, being almost gritty.
