    Buffalo Trace

  • ABV:


  • Age:


  • Price:
  • Intro:

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

  • Nose:

    Heavy on the honey and cinnamon. Peanut brittle. Toffee, oak. Whoah, is this a KC SIB? Sure smells like it.

  • Taste:

    Corn, vanilla and some oaky toffee. Earthy and peppery. Really thick and rich mouth feel, but the heat is there. It is hot.

  • Finish:

    Medium length, rich toffee, hot but not punishing

  • Overall:

    This was hot, but I really enjoyed it compared to previous SFTB. It was more oaky, toffee forward and rich on sweetness, even though the heat was there.

  • Score:
