There has been a working distillery on the Buffalo Trace grounds since 1787. Even during prohibition the distillery was one of only four given a special permit to produce alcohol for medicinal purposes. Today, it is home to such storied labels as George T. Stag and Blanton's. The Buffalo Trace line represents excellent quality and tradition for a Bourbon at this price. Sweet aromas of caramel apple and pecan pie. On the palate it is light weight but smokey with a bit of black pepper on the finish.
