Rock Hill Farms


ABOUT THE WHISKEY

  • Distillery: Buffalo Trace Distillery
  • Spirit: Bourbon
  • Aged: Unspecified
  • Proof: 100
  • Purchase Price: $54.99

About the Bottle:  When Buffalo Trace launched Blanton’s in 1984, they realized the variety of flavors that could come from their patented “Mash Bill No. 2.”

Some of Buffalo Trace’s most notable products all come from this primordial mash. Namely, Blanton’s (as previously mentioned) and Elmer T. Lee all come from this mash.

However, though the mash is the same, and the products are related, the flavor profiles couldn’t be farther apart. The location and style in which the mash is aged in the Buffalo Trace warehouses leads to drastically different final products.

Sticking with the horse theme, Buffalo Trace released yet another single-barrel product by the name of Rock Hill Farms.

From the Distiller: ” Our Florida Whiskey is a Wheated Bourbon. The flavor profile is sweet and smooth. We start with our 100% Corn Bourbon Whiskey base and blend in a touch of 100% Wheat Whiskey to balance the sweetness of the Corn. The mash bill is roughly 80% corn and because of that this is our sweetest whiskey. And last we pull all of the flavors together by blending in our 100% Single Malt Barley whiskey which adds a round buttery-ness to the final blend. This whiskey is amazingly well balanced and easy to drink. To preserve the natural Florida flavors we bottle it at 93 Proof.”
