Made at the Buffalo Trace distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky, this distillery is, incredibly, older than most of Scotland’s distilleries. Many famous bourbons are produced here, including George T Stagg (a mind-blowingly good bourbon), William Larue Weller, (the best whisky/whiskey I have ever tasted), Elmer T Lee and Eagle Rare. This is one of their entry-level bourbons, but you wouldn’t know it. The name is taken from the path created by the hundreds of thousands of buffalo as they crossed the Kentucky river, where the distillery now stands.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Soft. Light. Rounded. Aromatic. Fruit jellies. Honeycomb. Ripe bananas. Butterscotch.
Palate: Soft at first, then an explosion of fruit, citrus, vanilla and oak. Stunning!
