The standard bottling of Buffalo Trace, with corn and rye giving a mix of sweetness from the corn and spices from the rye.
Tasted as part of the Masterclass with Drew Mayville
Master Blender Drew Mayville chatted openly about this dram, telling us that the approximate age of this is 8 years sometimes older, sometimes a bit younger.
The rye adds a lovely spicy oaky edge to this dram but I really enjoy the sweetness from the corn and the vanilla that comes through from the fresh American oak. This is a lovely dram and easy on its own or as part of a whiskey sour, old fashioned or julep.
Available from many retailers including specialists like The Whisky Exchange
