Buffalo Trace Bourbon Whiskey
Hand-picked single barrel Buffalo Trace has arrived in the shop! This Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is the flagship Bourbon from Buffalo Trace Distillery. We chose two different barrels that were bottled just for our shop. This whiskey is top notch!
Nose: Outstanding aroma, kicked off by a spicy prickle. Satisfyingly deep, gently vanilla-ed and molassed with even a sprig of sweet mint.
Palate: A rip-roaring waxy sweetness checked by a big buildup of vanilla-rich oak. Corn is chewy, and rye offers a rich textured background.
Finish: Dries at last as the oak takes command, but rye offers extra depth and a layer of bitterness, as does a lingering licorice.
Comment: Big, moody, uncompromising and complex beyond belief.
“One of the world’s great whiskeys.”
Jim Murray, Whisky Magazine
Burnished gold in color, this bourbon brings a mélange of aromas to the nose: honey, vanilla, oak, toffee and a suggestion of coriander are all there. The body is big, and on the palate, this becomes a very spicy, masculine whiskey with a complex spicy mustiness and notes of leather, tobacco, overripe oranges and a surprising smokiness not often found in a bourbon.
“The finish is long and lush.”
