Country music superstar Chris Stapleton has partnered up with the iconic Buffalo Trace brand for their first ever celebrity collab! Master distiller Harlen Wheatley shares in a press release that he experiment withed more than 50 blends before they agreed that Blend No. 40 would become Traveller.

“Partnering with Buffalo Trace Distillery and Harlen Wheatley feels like a bucket list scenario for me,” Stapleton shared in a press statement. “Some things just make total sense — and this is definitely one of those things. Bottles from barrels that Harlen has cared for have been with us for every note we’ve ever recorded, backstage before shows and in all the moments we’ve celebrated along the way. I believe what we’ve achieved with Traveller Whiskey not only represents our shared history but also a common artistic vision and uncompromising standards of taste. I couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve made.”

What Does It Taste Like?

According to the press release, Traveller is not a bourbon but a 90 proof blended premium whiskey.

The provided tasting notes give fans an inside in what to expect. Traveller is highlighted by notes of oak, sweet maple, tart currant and leather with a complex nose of vanilla, aged fruit, shortbread, caramel and oak. The spirit also provides a touch of sweetness alongside a dash of spice, toasted nut and oak flavors with a robust finish.

"As a Kentuckian and a long time fan of Buffalo Trace Distillery and Harlen Wheatley, there isn’t a bottle anywhere I’d rather have my name on. I’m proud of what we’ve made and excited to share it with you," Chris shared on his Instagram!
