This flagship Bourbon has history in every sip.

There has been Whiskey made on the site of the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky, for more than two hundred years. The first distillery operation that can be continuously traced to Buffalo Trace was started in 1812 by Harrison Blanton (yes, that Blanton). He sold the operation in 1870 and it was renamed the Old Fire Copper (O. F. C.) Distillery. It has been bought and sold many times over the intervening decades, but Sazerac has owned the property since 1992. They produce a wide range of Bourbons and spirits — including their signature Bourbon.

Not only is the Buffalo Trace signature Bourbon beloved by its fans, it’s also really good and not overly-priced. In fact, it has become the flagship of the Sazerac Bourbon line-up. They keep the mash bill tight — Corn, Rye, and malted Barley with no Wheat filler. It is also aged 7 years and served up at 45% ABV. All that means rich, classic Bourbon flavor in every sip. For many Bourbon fans, Buffalo Trace is their “go-to” daily drinker and we think it would be hard to make a better choice.

Smartass Corner: Buffalo Trace has a capacity of about 2.7 million gallons per year — enough to fill about 51,000 barrels. This is especially impressive since everything passes through a single, 60,000 gallon beer still (wash type).

What does Buffalo Trace taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Buffalo Trace and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Kelly,
Just about the best everyday pour you can find for the price. Perfect for any occasion.
Tristan
Tristan,
Very attractive nose of oak with some vanilla and red delicious apple peel that also shine on the palate. Slightly sweet and smoking, and as smooth as it is complex. Lovin’ it!

Antti,
I was able to enjoy a bottle of Buffalo Trace Bourbon Single Barrel Select, 2017 which had a creamy birth of spicy molasses; a life of of brown sugar & cinnamon, that lead to a long death of dry oak & leather.
