This is one of Buffalo Trace’s core expressions (ableit a bit hard to find sometimes). It’s a NAS expression bottled at 45% ABV.
Nose: Buttery, vanilla birthday cake. Brown sugar, floral notes, and subtle oak.
Palate: Vanilla bomb with rich oak and caramel – tastes fairly young.
Finish: Oak develops nicely with a bit of a spicy edge with some molasses and brown sugar.
Rating: 88/100 – Good age, good proof, nothing much to complain about. Would make a great daily drinker.
Value for the money: These should retail around $35 which is a steal, but some stores mark them up and treat them as limited. I wouldn’t pay over $50 for one.
