This whiskey is produced at the scenic Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort. This is not a single barrel but a small batch from the mixing of a very small group of barrels (part of the antique series). You can taste the corn and rye, a seeming signature from this distillery, which end up smelling like leather, toffee, spices, and mint. You can smell the oaks influence on the whiskey in the peppery scent towards the end. Lots of dark fruit smells at the end as well.
"This bourbon is a challenge to all others. It sets the standard for bourbon, and shows how great a whiskey it can be. It gives most, if not all single malt scotches a run for their money when it comes to craftsmanship and quality. As close to perfection in bourbon as it gets. " - Spirits Review
