Bourbon Brothers Review No. 34 | Buffalo Trace Straight Kentucky Bourbon

Gaven and Jeff review Buffalo Trace



theherbpuffer says:

This is actually aged at least 8 years

peter white says:

I really enjoy your Bourbon opinions/reviews.

 You collection of near impossible to source whiskies is nearly as impressive as the “Liquorhound’s”

Putting this review into perspective…Elijah Craig 12 is a whopping $2 more in Ontario so would it be safe to say that EC12 is a much better “bang for the buck” than BT.

I use that comparison because EWSB is very expensive here compared to these 2. Prices for Bourbon in Canada do not really make sense some time.

Big fan of this bourbon…Picked up a massive 1.75 L bottle for $43 – great bargain!

Douglas Pettit says:

it’s a 7-9 year old bourbon depending…

Daniel Gillenwater says:

Great Review. Enjoy watching you guys. One thought regarding age statement though, at the 3:19 mark you mention that w/ no age statement it is “probably between 2-4 yrs.” However, by law, a “straight” bourbon that is less than 4 years old must state the age on the bottle. So, if they’re following the rules, this bourbon is at least 4 years old. Most estimates I’ve seen put it closer to the 6-8 year range. Just a thought. Thanks for the reviews, keep them coming.

I’m sitting here smelling it and your description is spot on. Didn’t expect that.

Definition of whiskey snobs

Skeedaddy187 says:

2 to 4 years? i thought any bourbon aged less than 4 years must have an age statement…. i was under the impression Trace is 6 to 8 yrs…

MusicFan says:

Thanks for the concise review guys. FYI, I recall there was an interview on Youtube with Elmer T. Lee from a few years back which may still be available. In it, he said that the Buffalo Trace Bourbon is a batching of barrels about nine years old, which is on par with the product bearing his own name from the same distillery. I suspect this Bourbon is still eight years old or so on average, but as an NAS product, it’s subject to change without notice. Its retail list price has crept up $4 per 750ml in three years.

Welsh Toro says:

Guys, Buffulo Trace stopped selling at 45% in Europe a few years back. It’s now a miserly 40% I can get some single cask bottles at 45% for £70 but that seems a little expensive. I’m not convinced it will be better than your regular bottles. Is it worth it for £70 sterling?
