White Dog is what whiskey is before it's put in the barrel to age. It's 100% grain forward and is alcohol in its purest form before the barrel starts to work its magic. The white dog that is used to make Buffalo Trace is a corn-heavy mash bill with malty notes and one of the few white dogs on the market that is not watered down to 80-90 proof before bottling.

Tasting Notes

"In the nose the mash bill of corn, rye and malted barley come through loud and clear. The palate is surprisingly smooth for a 125 proof, with a velvety mouthfeel and some additional complexity as it lingers. The finish is decently quick with heat and sweetness."
