Although the bottles themselves have yet to hit the shelf, Buffalo Trace has just released the breakdown of it's signature lineup to be released in the coming months. Breaking Bourbon has put together a (Thomas?) handy guide to give you an idea of what to expect when you are out hunting this fall. Good news for fans of wheated bourbon is the huge increase in one of the most coveted bottles, William Larue Weller! Bad news for fans of aged ryes is the dismal number of Sazerac 18 bottles to be had.
These bottles are notoriously hard to track down here in Michigan, so be on the look out for some of the fall's other special releases: Old Forester Birthday Bourbon, the Pappy Van Winkle lineup, and of course Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch! The 2016 Four Roses Limited Edition has already been released, marking new Master Distiller Brent Elliot's first premium pick. You can try it, along with previous years Limited Edition Single Barrel selections here at Sugar House on Saturday, September 24th at noon. Tickets for this Sugar House Drinking Team event can be purchased here.
