The Bourbon Life

Feb 5, 2021

In this Episode of The Bourbon Life Podcast, Matt and Mark spend some time hanging out with Harlen Wheatley, Master Distiller of Buffalo Trace.

The guys talk with Harlen about his upbringing in Kentucky and his education in chemical engineering at UK that led him to his first job with Buffalo Trace back in the mid ‘90’s, the amazing history of the Buffalo Trace Distillery and his impressive predecessors in the position at Master Distiller, and what the future looks like for Buffalo Trace.

And they also taste and review Buffalo Trace’s flagship Bourbon, Buffalo Trace, Weller Special Reserve, and Sazerac Rye (Baby Saz).

This Episode of The Bourbon Life Podcast is sponsored by The Stave Restaurant in Millville, KY, Three Chord Bourbon, and UK’s James B. Beam Institute’s Industry Conference. Check them out online at,, and
