Buffalo Trace, who makes this 10 year old whisky, was named Distiller of the Year by Whiskey Magazine in 2005 and 2007 and by the Wine Enthusiast in 2006. Paul Pacult of the The Spirit Journal gave it four stars and said: "Easily one of the most tactile yet assertive and expressive bourbons I've tasted in the last two years; fasten your seatbelts." Honey-colored with aromas of toasted wheat bread with hints of tobacco, opening up to almond butter, melon and lanolin. On the palate it is oily and toasty with flavors of cereal grains and oak. The finish is long, corn sweet with a little spice.
Nicely aromatic pop of toasted wheat bread, dried tobacco leaf, over-ripe banana and charcoal; somewhat restrained on the palate, it starts dry and evolves into a resiny richness, with flavors of toast, raisins, charred oak and candied almonds.
Very good, very smooth amazing taste!
Very nice bourbon!
Nose: Complex aromas of toffee, hints of orange peel, herbs, honey, leather and oak
Taste: Bold, dry, oaky flavors with notes of candied almonds and very rich cocoa
