Gold Medal - Exceptional
" Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of cinnamon, port wine, dutch baby pancake, sweet almond, and rose jam with a satiny, crisp, fruity medium body and a tingling, engaging, medium-length finish with notes of strawberry jam on toast and caramel finish. A sweet, toasty bourbon for cocktail play. " September 2019
Whiskey Advocate 90
" Thick, mature aromas, with notes of subtle spice, meadow grass, light molasses and leather. Pleasantly sweet at first in flavor, with notes of brown sugar and cinnamon, becoming dry with enveloping flavors of oak and leather. Finish long and dry."

200 Years of Bourbon Making History
In Kentucky, buffalo carved a pathway that was followed by America's early pioneers. On the spot where the buffalo migration route crossed the Kentucky River, we've been making legendary bourbon whiskey for over 200 years. Buffalo Trace is the oldest continuously operating distillery in America. During Prohibition the distillery was even permitted to remain operational, to make whiskey for "medicinal purposes".
In tribute to the mighty buffalo and the rugged, independent spirit of the pioneers who followed them westward, we created Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
Within the past decade, Buffalo Trace has won more awards than any other distillery in the world, including an unmatched seven "Distillery of the Year" titles. Still American family owned and located in Franklin County, Kentucky, the distillery's rich history includes such legendary distillers as E.H. Taylor, Jr, George T. Stagg, Albert B. Blanton, Orville Schupp and Elmer T. Lee. The distillery sprawls impressively over 130 acres and is home to four centuries of architecture - all still fully operational.
