We wrote about this in February when Buffalo Trace announced this. You can read the entire write up here. The Cliffs Notes are:

This is the 22nd experimental release from Buffalo Trace and uses their Mash Bill #1 (estimated to be around 75% corn, 10% rye, and 15% barley). The experiment is to allow the barrel staves to season longer than the normal 6 months, in hopes that the barrels will offer a unique flavor. Master Distiller Harlen Wheatley says:
“Although the taste difference is slight between the two experiments, these whiskeys taste different than our flagship Buffalo Trace bourbon. The 48 month seasoned stave barrels created a more mellow taste and holds less flavor from the wood. The 36 month seasoned stave bourbon is a little more flavorful with oak notes and caramel present” 

This raffle seems absolutely batshit... the state has 16 to raffle across the entire state. Expect hundreds of people to show for the chance to win 1 of 4 packs that are available. We'll be avoiding this like the plague and recommend you do too.

As always, we'll continue to monitor all state bourbon and whiskey raffles and lotteries. Sometimes there are good raffles and lotteries. Be sure to subscribe at so you never miss any news.
