Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection | 12 Year Old Wheated Bourbon, Cut at Four Years is comprised wheated sour mash bourbon. After four years of aging, water was added to reduce this bourbon to 100 proof and allowed to mature for another eight years. The nose is sweet and floral, with notes of oak, vanilla, and a bit of leather. There’s a really smooth creamy mouthfeel here. The taste is a pleasing balance of butterscotch, honey, and wood with a crisp finish.

Legal definitions and production rules
Under the North American Free Trade Agreement of 1994, Tennessee whiskey can be classified as Bourbon, although a number of well-known Tennessee whiskey producers opt not to use the term. Other states which produce Bourbon include New York, Virginia, Illinois, Colorado and Massachusetts.
There is no standard, international definition of Bourbon as a whiskey style, although a number of governments (notably the US, Canada and the EU) have laws protecting the name and its usage. In most countries, any spirit labeled as Bourbon must have been produced exclusively in the US.
Interestingly, the US’s own Bourbon labeling laws apply only to those products sold domestically, and not those destined for export. Under US law, the definition of Bourbon whiskey is “whiskey produced at not exceeding 160° proof from a fermented mash of not less than 51 percent corn and stored at not more than 125° proof in charred new oak containers”. The vast majority of bourbons far exceed the 51 percent minimum corn content and most are bottled with between 40 and 50 percent alcohol ABV (80° and 87.5° proof).
