Distillery: Buffalo Trace
From The Distiller: “Made from the finest corn, rye and barley malt, this whiskey ages in new oak barrels for years in century old warehouses until the peak of maturity. The taste is rich and complex, with hints of vanilla, toffee and candied fruit.”
Whiskey Culture Review
Notes of vanilla, toffee, caramel, and wheat play over undertones of ethanol. Upon tasting, the oak comes through with undertones of orange peel. These flavors give way tobacco, leather, and dried fig. The finish is medium-long with sweet corn, dried orange, and oak notes. The finish gets drier the longer it goes on.
The body is medium, with bold flavors on the front-end that quickly drops into more subtle notes.
