( 9052 )

The former George T. Stagg distillery was renamed Buffalo Trace when Sazerac took over ownership in 1999. Master Distiller Elmer T. Lee came out of retirement for the creation of the Buffalo Trace Bourbon which was released later that same year. This is the flagship bourbon from the distillery and is comprised of a low-rye traditional mash bill. It is bottled without an age statement at 90 proof.

Tasting Notes

"Buffalo Trace Bourbon shows a medium intensity on the nose with light spice (particularly cinnamon), vanilla, caramel, apples, and a touch of leather. The bourbon is soft on the palate with a creamed corn taste profile and a gentle sweetness. The finish is tangy and offers a medium spice note. A great everyday dram."
