Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

750 mL bottle  |   LCBO#:  605063

The sweet, round corn leads the stampede, drawing in smooth vanilla, dried fruit and citrus, even leather. Were it to stop there, this would be a fine whiskey, but then spicy notes from the secondary rye and barley grains step in, aided by toasty oak for a lively, dry and long finish. The balance is impeccable and the complexity impressive. Great neat, on the rocks or in a Manhattan. Score - 94 (out of 100). (Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and Mail, Thursday, Mar. 01, 2012)
