Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey [700ml]
This is the whiskey that heralded a new era of bourbon in 1999. Famed Master Distiller Elmer T. Lee came out of retirement to create this bourbon to celebrate the renaming of the George T. Stagg distillery to Buffalo Trace when Sazerac bought the company.
Classic notes of vanilla come through next to a dark syrup sweetness, a florist of fresh mint, and a raw leather that veers towards raw steak. The palate cuts through the sweeter notes with plenty of spices-like clove and star anise-next to a hint of tart berries underneath it all. The end is long, velvety, and really delivers on the vanilla and spice.
