Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY
Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is distilled, aged and bottled at the most award-winning distillery in the world. Made from the finest corn, rye and barley malt, this whiskey ages in new oak barrels for years in century old warehouses until the peak of maturity. The result is Buffalo Trace’s taste is rich and complex, with hints of vanilla, toffee and candied fruit. The smooth finish lingers on the palate. This will never change.
Buffalo Trace bourbon is consistently rated among the best bourbons in the world by the industry’s most knowledgeable critics. Buffalo Trace distillery is the oldest continuously operating distillery in America. During Prohibition the distillery was even permitted to remain operational, to make whiskey for "medicinal purposes".
Within the past decade, Buffalo Trace has won more awards than any other distillery in the world, including an unmatched seven "Distillery of the Year" titles. Still American family owned and located in Franklin County, Kentucky, the distillery's rich history includes such legendary distillers as E.H. Taylor, Jr, George T. Stagg, Albert B. Blanton, Orville Schupp and Elmer T. Lee. The distillery sprawls impressively over 130 acres and is home to four centuries of architecture - all still fully operational.
This deep amber whiskey has a complex aroma of vanilla, mint and molasses. Pleasantly sweet to the taste with notes of brown sugar and spice that give way to oak, toffee, dark fruit and anise. This whiskey finishes long and smooth with serious depth.
“One of the world’s great whiskies.”
–Jim Murray's Whisky Bible
“The finish is long and lush.”
–Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Five star rating in a four star scale
Great experience. Will definitely order again.
My wife experience is good using the site. I wish EH Taylor and Blantons were cheaper but I get it.
BT is difficult to find in my local stores so this was a gem to find. Drinks came safe, protected, and quick.
This is my go to everyday whiskey. So good and a great value too.
