The Schtick: Buffalo Trace is the name of a distiller and also a standardized, macro batched product released by that same distillery. This is a store selection, done by the Booze Boys, of a single barrel of Buffalo Trace, which is a BT Mashbill 1 spirit.
Distiller: Buffalo Trace
Bottler: Buffalo Trace
ABV: 45% ABV
Nose: Corn, honey, vanilla, rich clove. Nice complexity here, more honey and clove than I get from regular Buffalo Trace.
Taste: Medium, no heat. Honey, clove, vanilla, cocoa, waffles. The waffle note is interesting and delicious.
Finish: Long, sweet, honey, graham cracker, cloves. Typically, one of my wish list items for Buffalo Trace is a longer finish and this really nails it. Awesome.
Overall: Nice and complex, definite improvement on the standard Buffalo Trace that’s available on shelves.
