    I think we need to explain that we're pretty new at this and not presenting ourselves as experts but rather a couple of guys trying out various whiskeys and talking about them. We aren't posting ratings per se, just our take on the whiskey.
    One of the things I like is the research Jason does prior to the write ups. Anyway, no pretense here. We just want to share our enjoyment with y'all.

    Here is a interesting video about the distillery and it's past. You'll Mr. Elmer T. Lee in this video. He is the father of the single barrel bourbon. Mr. Lee passed away this past July.

    Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

    $22.00 for a 750ml

    Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is the flagship bourbon of the seven time “Distillery of the Year”, Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. This non-age statement whiskey is bottled at a much appreciated 45% ABV (90 proof). It has been written (unofficially) that Buffalo Trace is bottled with an average age of 8 years (plus or minus).

    Buffalo Trace bourbon as we know it, hit the shelves in 1999. However, the grounds on which the distillery stands, has been producing whiskey under various names and ownership since the late 1780s. Modern distillation arrived on site in 1857. Fortunately, during the Prohibition era, the distillery was able to keep it’s doors open because it held one of only four permits issued in the country to continue the distillation of “medicinal” whiskey. Since 1992, a New Orleans based company, Sazerac, has been the “deep pockets” needed to make it possible for the distillery to produce the volume and quality of whiskey that it has been year after year.

    The distillery’s 119 acres and 114 buildings are quite rich in history. Hell, a few of the aging warehouses have been in use for 125+ years. The distillery bottles bourbons that range in age from 4 to 23 years old. Here is a quick list of the other bourbons they produce and bottle:

    • Ancient Age
    • Antique Collection
    • Benchmark
    • Blanton’s
    • Buffalo Trace
    • Eagle Rare Single Barrel
    • Elmer T. Lee
    • Experimental Collection
    • Hancock’s
    • Old Charter
    • Old Taylor
    • Rock Hill Farms
    • Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey
    • Stagg Jr.
    • Van Winkle
    • W.L. Weller

    Do yourself a favor this month. Grab a bottle of Buffalo Trace bourbon and your favorite sipping glass. Light your Christmas tree and sip this American treasure while you sit in quiet reflection of all the hard work and discipline you have put forth this year. Job well done my friend!

    Merry Christmas to the entire FWE crew and their beloved family members.

    Nose: Sweet, ginger, molasses, carmel, pear, apple, banana, marmalade

    Nose (w/ a little water): Spiced orange, stove top caramel, toffee, brown sugar

    Taste: Sharp, barrel wood bitterness (in a good way), spicy, white pepper, .....yet fruity


    good review. I'll have to give it a try.
