Buffalo Trace as a brand has been around only since 1999 when both the brand and this Bourbon appeared under this name. Buffalo Trace bourbon is the distillery’s standard bottle, introduced in 1999 after the Sazerac Company changed the name of their famous distillery in Frankfort, KY. The bourbon is batched from no more than 40 barrels at a time and is aged on the middle floors of various warehouses so it can experience the most temperature changes while aging. 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. Buffalo Trace Bourbon (often called BT for short) is the namesake bourbon from Buffalo Trace Distillery, owned by the Sazerac Company. Buffalo Trace has roasty and earthy honey up front with red apple (sort of apple sauce-y), caraway seed, toasted marshmallow, orange, roasted oak, licorice, grilled pineapple, something slightly soggy, rosemary, and pumpernickel. It’s surprisingly earthy, so in terms of overall balance, it’s roasty and herbal sweetness first, then fruit, then more earthiness, oak, and spice. Bourbon whiskey.

The nose is simple and light with notes of oak and dark chocolate. There are also feint hints of vanilla and caramel. It’s very inviting and makes you wonder if the palate will be the same.

Buffalo Trace is sweet and mellow. I tasted mostly vanilla with a touch of spice and a slight hint of brown sugar. Some may think it’s too sweet, but it’s a fan favorite nonetheless.

The finish is on the shorter side and is much more flavorful than expected. The hints of vanilla lingered throughout, accompanied by oak and pepper. It’s honestly surprising how low the proof is.
