Review #883 – Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Booze Boys Selection

Review #883 | /r/Bourbon Review #465 – Buffalo Trace Booze Boys

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

Age: NAS

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.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 6
