This is a tasty and moderately smoky bourbon. It compares favorably to many others bourbon at higher price points. Give it a try!

- Tasting Notes
- Anise, Dark Fruit, Mint, Sweet, Vanilla
Ancient buffalo carved paths through the wilderness that led American pioneers and explorers to new frontiers. One such trail led to the banks of the Kentucky River where Buffalo Trace Distillery has been making bourbon whiskey the same way for more than 200 years. In tribute to the mighty buffalo and the rugged, independent spirit of the pioneers who followed them, we created our signature Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.View all products by Buffalo TraceCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Worked well with my homemade oleo sacrum, orange oil infused simple syrup, in an Old Fashioned. Very tasty and complimented on by my friend, who is a regular consumer of more expensive bourbons. I don’t drink a lot of bourbon, but I found it to be quite good, too.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
