This is the uncut, unfiltered Rye in the annual Buffalo Trace Antique Collection, and the 2018 edition is the strongest of the five whiskies in this year’s series at 128.8 proof/64.4% ABV. It has powerful, lush, and boldly spicy. Flavors of toffee, fig cake, and candied fruit, followed by mint, cinnamon and clove. The finish ultimately reveals subtle notes of allspice, coconut and nutmeg. Long and warm. Extremely rare.
