About the Single-Oak Project

Blackacre is a recipient of bourbon from Buffalo Trace’s Single Oak Project.   It’s their most inventive and comprehensive experiment yet. It started with 96 individually selected American oak trees that differed according to the number of growth rings per inch and growing location. Each tree was then cut into two parts – top and bottom – yielding 192 unique tree sections. A single barrel was constructed from each section. Prior to construction, the stave seasoning was varied. The 192 barrels were then charred differently. These single oak barrels were then filled with different recipe whiskeys, at various entry proofs and aged in a variety of different warehouse styles. 


This experiment allows whiskey connoisseurs to directly compare the impact of seven different critical variables across 192 bottles for a total of 1,396 taste combinations.  None of the 192 bottles in the complete set are exactly alike. The Single Oak Project is undoubtedly the most extensive bourbon experiment ever undertaken.


Blackacre received bottles from twelve of their barrels with high score ratings.  We are planning events where you will have the opportunity to acquire bottles from this rare collection and support our worthy organization.
