Tasting and Review by Daniel & Rex in the Whisk(e)y Vault
More than a spirit, more than a whiskey, this bourbon is a tribute to all that is unique. Buffalo Trace is the flagship bourbon from the multi award winning Buffalo Trace Distillery. Buffalo Trace is an 8-12 year old Kentucky straight bourbon whisky crafted from a “rye recipe” and bottled to “Kentucky proof” 45% ABV. Having aged for at least 8 years, a maximum of 50 barrels are selected from our premiere ageing slots for each production batch. To ensure the consistency and exceptional quality of Buffalo Trace each of these barrels is tasted by our Master Distiller and his team to ensure the taste profile and balance of Buffalo Trace. Only after unanimous approval will bottling commence. Buffalo Trace is rich, complex and smooth in taste.

IWSC Awards Tasting Note: Complex nose where corn, citrus and oak all play a part. Soft entry into the mouth with beautiful mouth feel. Creamy flow with toffee flavours and surge of honey all in sweet harmony. Great balance and texture. Long finish. A delight.
