The fad for distilleries releasing their new make spirit continues, this time in the form of Buffalo Trace's 'White Dog', the affectionate name given to unaged whiskey. Competitively-priced and attractively packaged, we reckon that Buffalo Trace's extra style credentials could well see this becoming a hit cocktail ingredient. Please note that this is a 37.5cl bottle
This is an expensive curiosity at best. It has an unpleasantly strong corn flavour, some good grain tastes in the finish, and is full of feints. It would be great to know if this is exactly Buffalo Trace Bourbon, but unaged, or a slightly modified recipe/expression. If it is the former, it is a good (but again, a rather expensive) illustration of the effects of aging and oaking on a spirit. If it is the latter, it is a cynical gimmick.

Brought this out to a works do, as is the custom to bring unusual drinks where i work. Burns like the fires of Hades (but in a good way). Thoroughly recommended (good with mixers too) but bear in mind the half size!
