  • Price:
  • Intro:

    This is a Mashbill #2 release from Buffalo Trace that is international only. It is bottled at cask strength.

  • Nose:

    Earthy pepper, honey and caramel. Ethanol and toffee.

  • Taste:

    Thick, hot, rich and sweet. Earthy, oaky, peppery. The heat is almost punishing, but theres a little bit of balance between sweet and earthy.

  • Finish:

    Long and hot, with lots of earthy pepper.

  • Overall:

    I generally find SFTB to be overly earthy and peppery, with some weird vegetal beet notes. This didn't have the weird beets, thankfully, but still suffered from being a bit too earthy for my tastes. That said, I enjoyed there being more balance here since the sweetness really helped it out.
