Buffalo Trace Bourbon is the Distillery’s flagship bourbon. It is a small batch bourbon that is hand-bottled in Buffalo’s premium bourbon bottling hall. Its cork stopper adds to the quality look and feel of the bourbon. The bourbon has been called “one of the world’s great whiskies” by noted spirits reviewer Jim Murray.
This deep amber whiskey presents tastes of sweet corn and dark candied fruit. The nose is a complex procession of vanillas and citrus and the mid-palate tastes includes cinnamon, nutmeg, oak and honey. The finish is long and improbably elegant with the smaller grains at last finding a coherent voice; the sweeter vanilla joined by a dry, toasty oak flavor.
