Buffalo Trace


Sampled at Whisky Birmingham 2015 run by The Birmingham Whisky Club.

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience. as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.


Amber – with a ruby tinge.


Sweet – toffee, caramel – rum, spice – cinnamon?


Sweet – brown sugar – spice and wood. A hint of coffee possibly showing through?


Long lasting, more spicy on the finish with some sweet vanilla mixed in.


A good bourbon which as a normally none bourbon has persuaded me to open my horizons a little more.



Taken from Buffalo Trace website:


Buffalo Trace

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.



This deep amber whiskey has a complex aroma of vanilla, mint and molasses. Pleasantly sweet to the taste with notes of brown sugar and spice that give way to oak,  toffee, dark fruit and anise. This whiskey finishes long and smooth with serious depth.
