Starting December 26th at Halls Chophouse Charleston, shots from a bottle of rare Buffalo Trace 1995 O.F.C. bourbon will be available for $250 each. The bottle will then move to the other Halls Chophouse locations in Summerville (Nexton), Columbia, and Greenville over the course of the week.
All proceeds will go to the Western Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund which was set up in response to the storms that ripped through the state earlier this month.
“Our Halls team was deeply saddened to see the devastation wreaked by the tornados in Kentucky and immediately started to explore ways that we could help the victims in this trying time,” said Tommy Hall, owner and CEO of Hall Management Group. “We are excited to offer this top-of-the-line, vintage Kentucky bourbon to our guests while providing much-needed assistance to a worthy cause.”
Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky, announced the rare release of 1,500 bottles of its vintage 1995 O.F.C. bourbon in November 2020, marking only the fourth O.F.C. vintage offered for sale. The O.F.C. vintage-dated bourbons take their name from the original name of the distillery, Old Fashioned Copper.
The 25-year-old bourbon is bottled in a crystal decanter with inlaid copper lettering nestled inside a wooden display case with a provenance card and a list of happenings from 1995 to put the age of this special expression in context.
Tasting notes for this bourbon describe cherry cordial on the nose followed by caramel and slightly smoked-oak. Dark chocolate, tobacco leaves and dates are found on the palate, followed by a lingering finish of leather, black pepper and cinnamon.
Last year, a bottle of 25-year-old Pappy Van Winkle bourbon travelled across Halls Chophouse locations around South Carolina to benefit Happy Wheels, a nonprofit providing toys to hospitalized children across South Carolina.
This year, Hall Management Group has also been offering specialty drinks to support Happy Wheels. The offer already occurred at Halls Chophouse Columbia and will take place at High Cotton and Slightly North of Broad in Charleston this week. $10 from every specialty drink sold will go to Happy Wheels.
