History – There are many things that Buffalo Trace is Known for and one of those things is being the oldest distillery in America. There is a rich history behind the brand that dates back to the 1700’s. Distilling on the site started in 1812 and was taken over by Harrison Blanton which was later sold to Edmund Taylor in 1870 in which was later named Old Fire Copper Distillery. It remained open during Prohibition to make bourbon for Medicinal Purposes. With its many popular brands that pour out of the distillery and has been a crowd pleaser especially in most recent years people flock to the stores that house any of Buffalo Traces Products. The Distillery now has become a ‘National Historic Landmark’ which was declared in 2013. Their namesake brand Buffalo Trace is one of the most affordable and adored brands that they create. 

Value – Excellent value for this bourbon. It hits all the right spots of a casual easy going sipper for the price point that it offers.

Appearance – Copper color. The bottle is very cool looking all the way down from the neck to the label. It posts a statement that shows the strength of the brand and the strength of the flavor.

Nose – Nutmeg/Cinnamon/Raisin and very little oak medium balanced but definitely an enjoyable but soft experience.

Palate – On the first pull it has Maple Syrup, Cinnamon, Seasoned Wood and Butterscotch along with superbly smooth while this bourbon is not strong at all it plays well with its standard proof offering.

Finish – Smooth and balanced with light heat lingering 5-10 seconds. This really reaches alot of the hot spots that a standard every drinker asks for in a finish. Something that you can take lightly but seriously at the same time

Summary – This bourbon is by far what I feel is one heck of a bourbon for the price point that it offers. Amazingly it is something that I feel any bourbon drinker will enjoy. As like all bourbons that I review and recommend it is best served neat so you can get all the flavors that it draws in on the pallet.

Hands down Buffalo Trace Straight Bourbon is a force to be reckoned with and a bourbon to be enjoyed by all!”
