Buffalo Trace 1980 The Last Drop is a very rare bottling of vintage Buffalo Trace bourbon, distilled all the way back in 1980 and bottled in 2020 by The Last Drop Distillers. The whiskey was distilled in 1980, when the distillery was still known as George T. Stagg, and matured in virgin American oak casks for almost 20 years. Before you start shouting angrily at your screen, with drops of spit hitting everything in its path: ’40-year-old bourbon! That’s crazy! That’s way too old, the maturation will have totally destroyed the taste!’, don’t worry, as this specific whiskey was tanked in 2000, meaning that it was transferred into stainless steel tanks so it wouldn’t mature into oblivion. The bourbon was uncovered by Buffalo Trace’s current master distiller Harlan Wheatley, who was an apprentice at the time it was distilled. The Last Drop Distillers was founded in 2008 by Tom Jago and James Espey, with the goal to find and share only the best and rarest spirits from all over the world. The company was acquired by Sazerac in 2016. Only 240 bottles of Buffalo Trace 1980 The Last Drop have been released. Please note: due to the size of the box, it takes two spaces in a parcel.
