I originally intended to include Buffalo Trace in our recent father’s day gift guide, however we weren’t able to obtain the review sample in time. With this said, Buffalo Trace is by pure definition a great example of a bourbon. What makes it stand out among most bourbons are its price and the rich flavors that come along with such a great price. Buffalo Trace Bourbon retails for around $25. In contrast most spirits that are worth their weight in ice, tend to start around $30 or $40. Take for example most quality gins or scotches. Normally with a few exceptions you can’t find a good bourbon under this price point, the only other exception that comes to mind is the Four Roses Small Batch which runs around twenty eight dollars.
By combining Kentucky and Indiana corn, rye, and a malted barley as well as a top-secret mash bill recipe, Buffalo Trace Distillery is able to yield an end result that is filled with incredible flavors.
A ninety proof bourbon that has notes of spice and oak. Adding a splash of water introduces notes of caramel, nuttiness and a tinge of mint.
With its great price and flavor profile, this is a must have for anyone looking to try something new or someone searching for bargain. It also makes a great gift in the under $30 range for the upcoming father’s day holiday.
