As previously noted in the treasure haul, I scored some Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. I am pleased to say this blended bourbon has character which is typically only seen in single malts.
It has a pleasant bronze/gold color, and shows well in its old style bottle. I had mine neat - no ice or water. I have to say there was complexity in the aroma as well as the palate. The aromas included vanilla, molasses and some spice. The tastes included brown sugar, spice, leather, and sort of smokiness. It certainly had the alcohol burn of a 90 proof whiskey, but it was not overwhelming or unpleasant. It is easy to drink, and a quality bourbon especially considering its price point. Recommended.
