Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : deep burnished gold
  • Nose : ample, elegant. Remarkably well-balanced, the initial nose reveals notes of noble wood, ginger and ripe fruit (peach, Mirabelle plum), each rivalling each other in their sophistication. Gaining in definition and power, it develops with increased exoticism (pineapple, mango). Heady, it gradually becomes floral (lilac, tuberose).
  • Palate : lively, precise. Strong spices confidently pervade and linger for several minutes (pepper, Espelette pepper). Gradually, notes of bourbon vanilla and rhubarb lead the palate to waver between sweetness and acidity. This creates wonderful freshness. Next, tobacco, lily flowers and yellow peaches open for a finish which boasts a velvety mouthfeel.
  • Overall : long, silky. Without losing any of its spicy, hot power, the finish is also coated in mineral salts and cocoa powder. Unusually, its original fruity register is revealed through just one red fruit: the red currant; its ruby colour shimmers beautifully under a radiant sunshine. Silky, it continues with notes of dark chocolate and liquorice. The retro-nasal olfaction is creamy and vanilla-scented. The empty glass reveals light notes of rancio (cherry eau-de-vie).
The brand

The brand

Buffalo Trace, the emblematic bourbon from the distillery of the same name, is a classical American whiskey. Created in 1999, this Kentucky Straight bourbon, produced from a mash bill of maize (80%), rye (10%) and barley (10%), is a blend of some thirty barrels of the distillery’s new make spirit aged between 8 and 12 years old. For a long time almost impossible to find outside the United States, it is now finally available in Europe, in a new version bottled at 40% (instead of 45% in America).
