Our first review of a bourbon will be Buffalo Trace Kentucky bourbon. This is a great bourbon to start with. It is very reasonably priced, easy to find and has a very mild taste that many people enjoy. We consider this a bourbon to rate other bourbons against.
Tasting was done straight up.
$24 at the VA ABC stores for a 750ml (90 proof).
Buffalo Trace – The Bourbon Guide review
|Rater||Nose||Alcohol Burn||Taste Scale||Overall Score|
|Jason||Unpleasant||C||+2 Sweet side||82|
|Tripp||Unpleasant||C: definite burn||+3 sweeter side||84|
|Jason||A solid everyday drinking bourbon. A good value for the money, but not an elite drink.|
|Tripp||Great value for the money. A bourbon you must always keep in your cabinet for everyday drinking and sharing with friends. This drink starts smooth and sweet, but finishes very rough and shallow compared to more expensive bourbons. The end is far worse than the start. Still a nice drink………….. ADDENDUM: After trying so many more bourbons, I would keep my review and ratings the same, but say this is not a MUST HAVE drink. I would order this over Makers or Woodford, but not over Evan WIlliams 1783 or many of the elite bourbons. A|
