Buffalo Trace is the flagship expression from the distillery of the same name. This is made from Buffalo Rye Mash #1 which consists of 80% corn, 10% rye & 10% malted barley. Then it is aged for around 8 yrs in Virgin charred oak casks that are sourced from sustainable oak trees over 70 years old.
The end result is caramel golden and really oily. It stocks to the glass beautifully and has a wonderful nose. Big waves of vanilla, sweet grain and nuts.
In the mouth the vanilla is as present as promised. Sweetness, dark fruits, light spices and rye.
The finish is long, spicy, drying and tangy.
This is a quality drop for the price. I am not hugely experienced in the world of Bourbon but I will be buying this again and again in the future.
