Ancient buffalo carved paths through the wilderness that led American pioneers and explorers to new frontiers. One such trail led to the banks of the Kentucky River where Buffalo Trace Distillery has been making bourbon whiskey the same way for more than 200 years. In tribute to the mighty buffalo and the rugged, independent spirit of the pioneers who followed them, we created our signature Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is distilled, aged and bottled at the most award-winning distillery in the world. Made from the finest corn, rye and barley malt, this whiskey ages in new oak barrels for years in century old warehouses until the peak of maturity. The taste is rich and complex, with hints of vanilla, toffee and candied fruit. The smooth finish lingers on the palate. This will never change.

Buffalo Trace is a bourbon with a minimum of eight years of barrel age. This flagship bottling is marked by flavors of butterscotch, toffee, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cracked pepper, with a silky caramel note that wraps itself around all that zing and punch on the finish.

Buffalo Trace Distillery is a distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky, owned by the Sazerac Company.[2] It has historically been known by several names, including the George T. Stagg Distillery and the Old Fashioned Copper (O.F.C.) Distillery. Its namesake bourbon brand, Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon whiskey, was introduced in August 1999. The company claims the distillery is the oldest continuously-operating distillery in the United States. The company says the name “Buffalo Trace” refers to an ancient buffalo crossing on the banks of the Kentucky River in Franklin County, Kentucky. The Sazerac Company purchased the distillery in 1992.

Under its old name, George T. Stagg Distillery, the property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on May 2, 2001, and designated a National Historic Landmark on March 11, 2013.

Tasting Notes

Color: Rich mahogany-hued golden brown, as bourbon should look after a minimum of eight years in a barrel

Nose: Rye strongly comes through and gives clear notes of vanilla bean, burned cinnamon, and allspice.

Palate: The rich butterscotch and toffee notes quickly morph into spice on the tongue, with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, and cracked pepper, likely from the presence of rye.

Finish: While spice and char dominate, a silky caramel note is present.

Our Review

The Buffalo Trace name is meant to honor the routes, or traces, of the pioneers who ventured out into the wilds of North American in search of a life. One, the Great Buffalo Trace, led to a settlement near Frankfort, Kentucky, where the distillery was born and has produced some of the finest American whiskey for more than 200 years. But even if Davy Crockett tales of the American migration west don’t excite you, the distillery’s spice-driven well-aged whiskeys certainly will.

The Sazerac Company bought the George T. Stagg Distillery and renamed it Buffalo Trace after the iconic bourbon. Since then, the distillery, which is also home to sought-after labels that include Pappy Van Winkle, has made the Buffalo Trace Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey its flagship bottling. And if you don’t happen to have the cash for Pappy, Buffalo Trace’s entry-level bottling makes a good alternate go-to.

Its spice-and-char-driven flavor renders the bourbon an excellent choice for a memorable Manhattan (and mixing in general with its 90-proof extra octane). When enjoyed neat, it’s slippery and spicy on the tongue, with silky notes of butterscotch; add a bit of water and it opens up with significant vanilla and allspice. It’s the benchmark whiskey to start with in understanding the Buffalo Trace line, which is well worth exploring.
