Buffalo Trace Bourbon

This whiskey is produced at the scenic Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, close to Woodford Reserve Distillery if you are touring home of numerous other whiskies such as Eagle Rare 10 year-old, Eagle Rare 17 year-old, Blanton's, Rock Hill Farms, Hancock Reserve, and Elmer T.Lee. The mixture of Corn and rye gives off aromas of vanilla and mint. You can smell the oaks influence on the whiskey in the peppery scent towards the end. Wonderful thick mouthfeel, warming but not burning at first. Smooth sweet honeyed notes with oak pepperiness at the end and a aftertaste of vanilla, fruits, mint and a warming heat. Goes down the throat with a warming pleasant burn. Lets you know you are drinking whiskey but doesn't punish you for it.

Rating: 9.0 out of 10
