Buffalo Trace Review

Buffalo Trace 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

Loads of lovely sweet coconut milk, freshly scraped Madagascan vanilla, lots of sweetness, marzipan and hints of sugared almonds.


Sweet lovely coconut, vanilla and marzipan, boiled fruity sweets, a really creamy note, hints of oriental spices


Grows spicier on the finish, quite drying
