Buffalo Trace


Buffalo Trace Taste Profile

Stats – Kentucky straight bourbon, Barrel 304 for West Lakeview Liquors
Price – $30
Color – Deep orange/brown
Nose – Sweet, oak, and grass
Palate – Mellow and smooth, a little citrus builds and fades in the front half.  Sweet, but not sticky or forcefully so.  A good vanilla character with some new barrel oak.  A floral note opens at the finish, almost like orange blossom.  A touch of heat at the tail end that brings in a minerally white grape taste at the finish.  A great value.

Alternatives:

  1. Michter’s US*1 (94%)
  2. Stronachie 12 Year (92%)
  3. Aberfeldy 21 Year (91%)
