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).

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,
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.

This stuff is amazing. Seems like a try to have a glass and next thing you know half the bottle is gone.

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.

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.
