Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey



8 Years


90 (45.0% ABV)




Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey unfolds with a robust, mature bouquet. It presents subtle hints of spice, meadow grass, light molasses, and leather. These thick aromas paint a vivid picture that prepares you for the journey ahead.

The initial flavor is pleasantly sweet, reminiscent of brown sugar and cinnamon. This sweetness gradually gives way to a drier profile, dominated by the enveloping flavors of oak and leather. The transition is seamless, offering a complex yet balanced tasting experience.

The finish is long, dry, and filled with a delightful variety of notes. Caramel, abundant butter, warm mixed nuts, pumpkin spices, butter toffee, mint, and fruit cake all make an appearance. This symphony of flavors ends on a medium-length note, leaving behind a lingering sweetness and spice that beckons you back for more.
