Ride the White Lightning.
The Buffalo Trace Distillery which is located in Frankfort, Kentucky has been making Bourbon Whiskey for over 200 years. Named after the American bison, Buffalo Trace has in all these years never stopped producing Whiskey—not even in the days of the Prohibition, when they were allowed to produce "medicinal" Whiskey, khm.

In the past decade Buffalo Trace has won more awards than any other distillery in the World, including 7 "Distillery of the Year" titles. In 2013 they were designated as a National Historic Landmark, joining an elite group of the most influential places in North America.
The Buffalo Trace White Dog Mash #1 is an un-aged, unflavoured Whiskey distillate that is bottled directly at barrel strength, thus preserving the full taste of a White Whiskey and making it the closest thing to a “legal” moonshine. White Whiskey is also known as White Dog, White Mash, New Make and even White Lightning—a name referring to the jolt of lightning that follows after tasting it, and at 62.5% ABV there will be some lightning, for sure. White Dog Mash #1 eventually becomes Buffalo Trace Bourbon.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Colour

Smell / Nose / Aroma
Rich and smooth. Bread dough, popcorn, toasted grains, apples and hints of tropical fruits.
Flavour / Taste / Palate
Syrupy with sweet corn, fresh bread, heavy spice midway through, and a touch of barley. Oily texture.
Medium, with a good amount of warming heat, notes of salt and copper.

An interesting experience, naked Whiskey, no wood influence, try it with and without adding water. 
Ratings & Reviews
It tastes like naked bourbon. Almost like a spicy vodka. I really don't have a frame of reference for how this "should" taste. Not bad, but I expected it to be more like moonshine. It really is not bad for what it is, so just understand that before you drink and rate it.
Spicy and sweet, reminds me of sweet bread. Not bad!!
Smells of alcohol and nothing else, tastes of alcohol and popcorn. Adding water doesn't bring out any complexity. Awful.
