On Sunday evening, April 2, 2006, a severe storm with tornado strength  winds tore through Central Kentucky, damaging two Buffalo Trace  Distillery aging warehouses. One of the damaged warehouses was Warehouse  C, a treasured warehouse on property, built by Colonel Edmund Haynes  Taylor, Jr. in 1885. It sustained significant damage to its roof and  north brick wall, exposing a group of aging bourbon barrels to the  elements. That summer, the exposed barrels waited patiently while the  roof and walls were repaired, meanwhile being exposed to the Central  Kentucky climate.  When these barrels were tasted years later, it was  discovered that the sun, wind, and elements they had experienced created  a bourbon rich in flavors that was unmatched. This was truly a special  batch of barrels, and though the Distillery does not hope for another  tornado, it feels lucky to have been able to release this once in a  lifetime product.
