Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Tasting Notes Review

Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon


Tasting Notes


Nose: Outstanding aroma, kicked off by a spicy prickle. Satisfyingly deep, gentle vanilla-ed and molassed with even a sprig of sweet mint.


Palate: A rip-roaring waxy sweetness checked by a big build up of vanilla-rich oak. Corn is chewy and rye offers a rich textured background.


Finish: Dries at last as the oak takes command, but rye offers extra depth and a layer of bitterness as does a lingering licorice.


Comment: Big, moody, uncompromising and complex beyond belief.

One of the world's great whiskies.

Tasting Notes


Colour:- Burnished gold in colour,


Nose:- this Bourbon brings a mélange of aromas to the nose: honey, vanilla, oak, toffee, and a suggestion of coriander are all there.


Palate:- The body is big, and on the palate, this becomes a very spicy, masculine whiskey with a complex spicy mustiness and notes of leather, tobacco, overripe oranges, and a surprising smokiness not often found in a Bourbon.


Finish:- The finish is long and lush.
