Description: Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a piece of liquid history: a limited edition bourbon hand-crafted from a maximum of 45 barrels of whiskey aged for at least nine years in the best locations its distillery has to offer.
Long ago migrating herds of buffalo carved a path, or trace, through the wilderness of North America and up to the banks of the Kentucky River. During the 1770s, pioneers followed their trail and established a settlement there. Soon they were harvesting American grain, blending it with spring water and distilling whiskey where Buffalo Trace is made today.
Buffalo Trace has a complex aroma of vanilla, mint and molasses, a pleasantly sweet taste with notes of brown sugar, spice, oak and leather, and a long, dry finish. It is best enjoyed straight, over ice or in a range of classic cocktails.
Review: A very smooth taste. A nice sweet hint of vanilla and caramel type taste. Has to be had straight as with all whiskies otherwise the flavour will be ruined. Excellent value for the money. Would recommend any time. 7/10.

Review: A decent whiskey for the price. The most notable taste is a strong Rye taste. I would definitely buy it again for the price.
