Ancient buffalo carved paths through the wilderness that led America's first pioneers and explorers westward. One such trail led to the banks of the Kentucky River where we've been making bourbon whiskey the same way for over 200 years. Uncompromised and unchanged, we're proud of the whiskey we make. Dedicated to the independent spirit of America, Buffalo Trace is the world's most decorated distillery. We invite you to explore our rich history, our award-winning bourbon and learn why we'll always stand strong.
The Experts Agree: The Finish is Long and Lush. Burnished gold in color, this bourbon brings a melange of aromas to the nose: honey, vanilla, oak, toffee and a suggestion of coriander are all there. The body is big, and on the palate, this becomes a very spicy, masculine whiskey with a complex spicy mustiness and notes of leather, tobacco, overripe oranges and a surprising smokiness not often found in a bourbon. -Wine Enthusiast Magazine
One of the World's Great Whiskeys. Outstanding aroma, kicked off by a spicy prickle. Satisfyingly deep, gently vanilla-ed and molassed with even a sprig of sweet mint. A rip-roaring waxy sweetness checked by a big buildup of vanilla-rich oak. Corn is chewy, and rye offers a rich textured background. Dries at last as the oak takes command, but rye offers extra depth and a layer of bitterness, as does a lingering licorice. Big, moody, uncompromising and complex beyond belief. - Jim Murray, Whiskey Bible
