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 at least 8 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).

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

The temperatures of American warehouses are much higher, so the pace of maturation is much quicker for Bourbons than for Scotch Whiskies

Literally a gold medal winner many times over. Great taste, resonable price, hard to find in liquor stores because it runs out so quickly. But Flaviar has it!!
 
Matt
Matt,
Enjoy neat with splash of water. Full nose of caramel, vanilla, and taste of spice. A great go to bourbon for every day relaxer. Definitely hard to come by in Florida.

Excellent three fingers of buffalo with a little bit of ice let it open up beautiful taste

Probably most bourbon connoisseurs are aware that Buffalo Trace is an award-winning whisky and hard to get. Thanks to my membership in Flaviar, I’ve been able to buy some for special friends and even some for myself!! Faviar does their own award-winning job in packaging and shipping. AND....they keep their customers informed as to the progress of the order

A nice basic Bourbon. Nothing exciting but good.
 
James
James,
This one doesn't do it for me like some other fine Bourbons introduced to me via Flaviar. It is smooth and has nice spice at the start, but falls flat for me at the end.

Amazing whiskey, especially considering the price. A great sweet caramel flavor
 
Randy
Randy,
Buffalo Trace never disappoints. With a little ginger ale and ice on a hot day by the pool, or on the rocks in the evening with a cigar, always a good choice!

Iconic American bourbon!
 
Nathan
Nathan,
A great basic bourbon. This tends to go well in a mixed drink as it does not have a strong note of anything particular.
 
Andy
Andy,
Love this! Buttery popcorn and caramel nose. Taste is similar to the nose with a little spice on the finish. My favorite right behind Blanton's

Jason
Jason,
This is absolutely incredible for under $35. Not sure how other companies can charge 3x and make a product barely drinkable. Been drinking bourbon for years...Not sure if you’ll find a better everyday & special occasion bourbon.

David,
For those of us who can rarely justify more than $100 a bottle, this is the closest thing to Pappy and Weller you can get, I think. It's smooth, it's clean... it does have the extra twist of sweetness that you get with wheated bourbon, but for me that is "the" taste, and it's not overdone. Soft and then warm - lingering flavor. One of my top bottles.
 
Geoffrey
Geoffrey,
This one is not for the newbie such as myself. This was sweet, spicy, and had a chard oak flavor that I think was too upfront for my liking.
 
Billy
Billy,
Fantastic. Great price. Available. What else could you desire in today’s whiskey market??
 
Dennis
Dennis,
This stuff is amazing. Seems like a try to have a glass and next thing you know half the bottle is gone.
 
Scott
Scott,
This is my go-to bourbon when I can get it (now easier since I'm a Flaviar member)! The flavor wheel on this one is spot on! Don't be afraid of the "lingering sweetness" it's not cloyingly sweet. Just gives rounds off the harsher edges usually seen.
 
Kole
Kole,
Love this smooth bourbon. Drinkable neat.

3rd place to angels envy in my bar

Kevan,
Great go-to for the price. Butter and spice on the nose; nice toffee flavor. More so if I add a cube of ice but mellows the spicy finish. I usually drink it neat but it was 98 degrees here today! Will buy again and again.
