You thought it was hard to track down already.
One of the most highly coveted whiskey releases has obtained an even higher profile. Buffalo Trace’s William Larue Weller, a wheated cask-strength from the brand’s much-sought-after 2018 Antique Collection, was named World Whisky of the Year in “Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2019.”
The long-running book by whiskey writer Jim Murray is influential of consumer attitudes.
Buffalo Trace scored another victory when their Thomas Handy Sazerac Straight Rye, also a cask-strength Antique Collection offering, scored Third Best Whiskey in the world.
This is the second year in a row a whiskey from Buffalo Trace Distillery has taken home the prize of number-one whiskey in the world from Jim Murray. In addition, Buffalo Trace’s Blanton’s Gold Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey was named Single Cask of the Year, while the Sazerac-owned The Last Drop Distillers’ “Glenrothes” release was honored as Scotch Single Cask of the Year.
