Name: Buffalo Trace
Bottled By: Buffalo Trace Distillery
Age: 9 Years
Notes: Buffalo Trace is an all around great Bourbon. It has nice oak, caramel, and molasses flavors. It is sweet, which can probably be attributed to the length of time is spends in the barrel. It is an easy drinker and a great everyday pour. Don’t let the price fool you, this bourbon is definitely a mid shelf Bourbon. With some other Bourbons in this price range raising their prices, Buffalo Trace is quickly becoming the go-to Bourbon for many, and for good reason. We definitely took the price into consideration when we gave this one our rating. We enjoy Buffalo Trace with a splash or a cube.
History: Buffalo Trace distillery was started sometime before 1773 by Hancock Lee. The distillery has been known by many names throughout it’s history. It is located on what the company claims is an ancient buffalo crossing on the banks of the Kentucky River in Franklin County.
