Whisky Reviews for Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon

29 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 78.40 points

  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 81 points Administrator

    Buffalo Trace is for bourbon what Glenfiddich 12 is for Scotch: it's reliable, widely available and does the job. On the nose, you get the usual suspects - vanilla, honey and some toffee. It's quite floral and sweet with hints of apple juice and wood glue. The taste is spicier and more peppery with vanilla cream, treacle and slightly bitter oak. Shall we say 'smooth and mellow'? Distant notes of almonds, mint and refined sugar remain in the aftertaste. This benchmark bourbon will certainly not blow your socks off, but it's both enjoyable and great value for money.

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A beautiful spicy everyday bourbon. The oak is present, no gluey note, slightly fruity and despite the 40% not a bit thin. Maybe one of the best in the price range.
