Basic caramel and spice great for old fashions. The total wine pick in 2019 was a sipper though
 
Blake
Blake,
Delicious and easy to drink. My go to everyday whiskey!
 
Michael
Michael,
Tasted like flowers... or perfume... weird. That taste goes away once the bottle stays opened for a while.
 
Alexander
Alexander,
Smooth, with a sweet hint of vanilla. Super easygoing and unpretentious.

Jaakko
Jaakko,
Colour pretty fine, yellow, not strong but solid enough. Smell pretty bourbony in the not most flattering sense. Cherry, banana, sugar. Still, not at all unpleasant. Taste is surprisingly good! Not a thick liquor, but there's tons of flavours. Fresh general feeling, none of the stuffy and constipated bourbon feeling that you sometimes get. Some wood, raisins? Nuts or some other nice creamy/oily taste. Even the aftertaste is long and interesting. What a surprise! This is great. I'll give it a 8 for now, but might ramp up to 9 if this keeps up on latter tries.
 
Simon
Simon,
Tastes like you'd expect for a £20 whisky. Cheap. Good value, but I wouldn't use this for anything other than cocktails.

Derrick,
My all time go to.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Was sweet tasting but had more heat and harshness in it than expected. I liked this with a splash of ginger ale. Not everyone’s cup of tea but that’s how i liked it.
 
Terrell
Terrell,
Good bite yet smooth.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Very nice Whiskey, one of nicest I've ever had. Goes down smooth and has a nice warm burn after. Easy to drink neat. I haven't tried it with ice or any mixers. It's just fine on its own.
 
Sean
Sean,
A fine bourbon, not much going on so makes for a fantastic cocktail spirit
 
Stefan
Stefan,
A apple and dried fruit note comes to mind on the noes, at first. After this the caramel sweet comes and then the spice. On the taste it is some buttery, caramelfudge thing that comes to mind before the spice and nut come to play. Great bourbon!
 
Michael
Michael,
great daily drinker
 
Mark
Mark,
Incredibly smooth! The hints of fruit veered towards apple and cherry for me. An excellent sipper on any day of the week that ends in "y."
 
Maxime
Maxime,
Lovely whisky. A warm and sweet smell with a hint of fruit. Then the whisky brings gentle tastes of honey and caramel. The finish is sweet and a bit spicy (cinnamon?).

David
David,
What can I say that isn't already obvious by the lack of availability of this great bourbon. I only wish that everyone wasn't so crazy about BT products now days. This is simply a great bourbon at a great price. Anytime our local stores have it, we're limited to one bottle purchased at a time. Sounds like it is more available in some parts of the country, but not the southeast. Perhaps there are two many of us bourbon drinkers here!
 
Tim
Tim,
“What’s a good Bourbon that’s priced reasonably and easy to find anywhere?” Buffalo Trace While taste is obviously subjective and everyone prefers different things, I have never spoken to a whiskey drinker who had anything bad to say about Buffalo Trace. That being said, it takes no risks so it’s a safe bet which is both its strength and it’s weakness. Cheers

An "average" bourbon that is better than average. The little brother of Old Rip Van Winkle. I'd drink it anytime.
