Buffalo Trace

The Buffalo Trace was named after the Buffalo roads that passed the distillery at the Kentucky river. All the Buffalo Whiskeys mature in fresh American oak casks for 8 to 12 years. This gives them a lot of intense vanilla and oak aromas.

Buffalo Trace is for bourbon what Glenfiddich 12 is for Scotch: it's reliable, widely available and does the job. On the nose, you get the usual suspects - vanilla, honey and some toffee. It's quite floral and sweet with hints of apple juice and wood glue. The taste is more spicy and peppery with vanilla cream, treacle and slightly bitter oak. Shall we say 'smooth and mellow'? Distant notes of almonds, mint and refined sugar remain in the aftertaste. This benchmark bourbon will certainly not blow your socks off, but it's both enjoyable and great value for money.
