Sweet vanilla, corn, some oak and clove. Very nicely balanced. Mild earthiness, maybe a hint of cocoa
Surprisingly no ethanol whatsoever. Sweet vanilla, mild cocoa, caramel, clove, faint oakiness. Nice mouthfeel for the proof
Medium, some of that mashbill #1 fruitiness coming in. Sweet, clove, caramel.
I think this pick beats the regular, off the shelf BT. Ethanol is very subdued and some of my favorite notes are ramped up a bit. Buffalo Trace is a great value, especially for what it brings to the table. For those that are new - Buffalo Trace scores my Median score, or a Rank 5, as a benchmark baseline to compare all others to in the bourbon landscape. I think this pick ramps up the caramel notes and a good deal of vanilla and faint cocoa that I like in the original so much. Therefore, Ill aware this a Rank 6.
