The sweet, round corn leads the stampede, drawing in smooth vanilla, dried fruit and citrus, even leather. Were it to stop there, this would be a fine whiskey, but then spicy notes from the secondary rye and barley grains step in, aided by toasty oak for a lively, dry and long finish. The balance is impeccable and the complexity impressive. Great neat, on the rocks or in a Manhattan. Score - 94 (out of 100). (Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and Mail, Thursday, Mar. 01, 2012)
Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Ancient buffalo carved paths through the wilderness that led American pioneers and explorers to new frontiers. One such trail led to the banks of the Kentucky River where Buffalo Trace Distillery has been making bourbon whiskey the same way for more than 200 years. In tribute to the mighty buffalo and the rugged, independent spirit of the pioneers who followed them, we created our signature Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
This deep amber whiskey has a complex aroma of vanilla, mint and molasses. Pleasantly sweet to the taste with notes of brown sugar and spice that give way to oak, toffee, dark fruit and anise. This whiskey finishes long and smooth with serious depth.
