The bourbon is made at the oldest continuously working distillery in America and is a great example of type. Previously the George T Stagg distillery, it was renamed Buffalo Trace at the turn of the century, and also produces the likes of Eagle Rare and Blanton’s, multi-award winning whiskies.
The Kentucky Straight Buffalo Trace is a great introduction to the category, complete with all the characteristics you’d hope for in a bourbon. Sweet vanilla jumps up the nose and bounces around your bonce, while the leather and oak on the palate gives you plenty to linger over. Great neat or in cocktails like a julep or an Old Fashioned.
