This is going to be the shortest blog I have ever written… this is because it’s very obvious, even though so many people have forgotten……
Buffalo Trace the standard one.
Ground nutmeg, brown sugar, menthol, warm ginger snaps, french toast.
Good heat, medium finish with wood oils and tannins. Spicy and sweet. Extremely balanced.
It’s amazing Buffalo Trace can put out a product of this caliber for this price. Around $20 most places (shame on any retailers who are charging more!), this is a solid, reliable, balanced bourbon that is readily available everywhere and never disappoints. Won’t blow you away, but stands up to many others at significantly higher price points. Must own for all whiskey collections. For those who are just picking up the Bourbon for the first time, do NOT forget to try this standard. 91/100.
