This is a Buffalo Trace wheated 12 year expression that’s bottled at 45% ABV.
Nose: Waves of wheat with vanilla, brown sugar, oak, and subtle pear/green apple.
Palate: Delicate wheat up front with barrel char & oak with black pepper. The low proof is pretty noticeable here.
Finish: Mostly oak with a little brown sugar and caramel.
Rating: 85/100 – A nice entry point into wheated bourbons.
Value for the money: These *should* retail for around $25-$30, however given the bourbon craze, some stores push this up to $60+ to take advantage of uninformed buyers. These aren’t worth anything over retail.
