Buffalo Trace Bourbon
Buffalo Trace // Kentucky, USA
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. The whiskey is comprised of a low-rye mashbill providing for a softer, sweeter expression and is bottled at 90 proof.
BourbonProduced anywhere in USA; Mash bill of at least 51% corn; aged in new, charred oak containers.

"The aroma is sweet with a hint of alcohol. It gives way to vanilla, Heath candy bars and barrel spices. The palate is very sweet with a mixture of corn, brown sugar, and tobacco. The finish is quick, sweet and full of New Jersey sweet corn."
