Hi, I do enjoy many different whiskies from the traditional old Highland and Lowland whiskies of Scotland to japanese, French, Irish and so on (never with ice, thats a sin and kills the taste for me) but Buffalo Trace is up with the best of them for me!!

I like alot of JD's and have recently been branching out on my whiskey, I had 2 bottles of these when I went to a festival and it was very enjoyable (probably not in the best state to comment on taste)
However I did have a bottle of this at my prom, did manage to have a few drinks with ice with my dinner, absolutely wonderful thing to drink!

I may be a complete Noob in relative terms to most serious Whisky drinkers out there but I've tried a good few bourbons and I know what I like. And to those that have to have Bourbon on the rocks I'll say this...I fully reccommend this (even just for the first glass) without. It's liquid velvet and tastes like a bargain at that price - I agree with axelrod it should be twice the price it's that good. Try and you will not be dissapointed.

Having read the rave reviews for this whiskey, and the distillery's other products, I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did! This is excellent. Much more complex than most bourbons available in the U.K.. Tastes of vanilla, and woodsmoke, but also a pleasant hint of menthol. Nicely balanced, and very easy to drink. Excellent value too!

Par excellent bourbon. So smooth despite its strength - perfect over ice. Smooth and sweet, with a delicate clean aftertaste of peat/damp wood. Outstanding! Yummy! More! More! More!

Can't belive this only cost just over £20. Buy a bottle, you won't be disappointed...

Great stuff. Tastes pure and sweet. Caramel and cinamon, with a cool, fresh after taste. Drank half a bottle on a friday night without realising it, and still felt great in the morning. Magical stuff.

An outstanding, big flavoured bourbon with a very appealing price.

Buffalo Trace is a great bourbon for its price and makes a fine addition to any american whiskey collection.

Spent half a Lifetime as a Beer Salesman, and always enjoyed a shot of good Whiskey in the Morning and Afternoon. Buffalo Trace is the Best I've ever had! By Far! And in the past 40 years I've tried them all.

Nose (undiluted): Rich corn husk, vanilla, maple. Palate (undiluted):Smooth! Layered flavors of corn, vanilla and slight hickory smoke. Damn! This is good! Finish (undiluted):Tangy, easy spiced rye and some drying black licorice. Wow! Black licorice and charred American oak. Hmm, hmmm good, like Mom?s apple pie with extra cinnamon coolin? on the window sill with a tea towel covering it on a sunny day.

first time for me not a bad bourbon nice after taste will try again

Im vexed as to why so many scotch drinkers taste this and say "meh its ok, but im not a bourbon drinker"??. If your not a bourbon fan, then dont rate it. As chance has it I love both but my tastes lean towards bourbon simply because I like sweeter whiskeys. BT is a fine rye bourbon its smoother that Wild Turkey and remarkably easy to drink. People that say this is entry level must be entering the market on a lift as there are a ton of bourbons below this i could deem 'entry level'.
