This is the cheapest of the core Colonel EHT lineup from Buffalo trace. It’s a NAS small batch expression that’s bottled in bond and thus bottled at 50% ABV.
Nose: A bit musty and closed of at first before heavy oak and banana bread poke through. Cloves and nutmeg emerge with a bit of acetone lurking in the background.
Palate: Some weird metallic note up front before turning leathery with anise and toasted oak. Fairly basic palate lacking some of the spicier notes from the nose.
Finish: Cloves come back with a nutty, musty oak and a bit of wheat bread.
Rating: 83/100 – A pretty standard, young BIB bourbon. Would be nice for an every day drinker.
Value for the money: I typically see these around $38 or so which makes a good value buy.
