Buffalo Trace is a really classy bourbon from the eponymous distillery that has been responsible for some truly outstanding products in recent years. A must-stock for any bar worthy of the name and probably the best all-rounder around twenty quid.
Exceptional Bourbon, much nicer than the bog standard JD that is more than often used to make due with... Has a good, long lasting taste that is not too strong nor too subtle

A very good class bourbon, if you like this, try Woodford Reserve...superb. I used to drink JD until I tried these. I just have a JD maybe once a year now just to remind me how bad it really is. Think about it, its so commercialised you can damn near buy it at the post office!

I must be honest I got this because I wanted to drink an Old Fashioned, this drink went well with the cocktail, I will be buying another bottle of this product.

Never had the pleasure of the 45%, but this (40%) is still a top notch bourbon. Lovely flavour, not too sweet, very smooth. I'd love to try the 45%, but until then this is a great drink.

A great whisky! It's one of my favourite bourbons and up there with Jim Beam Black. Goes down very easy and very smooth too. Totally trumps JD in my opinion.

Excellent stuff. I'm enjoying this much more than JD or jim beam. Smooth, real easy drinker and really good with coke too! Highly recommended

Ok - just - but very poor when compared with the 45% version....Makers Mark considered watering down their product a while ago but responded to public pressure to stay at the higher rating - that would have been the right decision here......

This is a fantastic drink. I've not had the opportunity to taste the 45%, but for the money, this (40%) is very hard to beat. One of my favourite every day bourbons, very smooth and easy to drink. The bottle doesn't last very long!

This is one of the best for the price, best drunk straight- without ice. Not as sweet as Jack D and a bit more refined than Jim B. Really is well worth a try

A good whisky for the price. I personally cant tell much difference between this and Jim Beam, but i am a newbie to the whisky drinking, im loving Makers Mark at the minute.

Had a taste of this Bourbon and was pleasantly surprised so much so that i bought a bottle which i've added to my other selection's

Cannot believe they've done this. Regular pour for years, but always wished it was a little higher proof. Don't know what it tastes of because I will never buy bourbon below 45%. Just does not do it for me.

A lesser whisky then the old 45% version, the same flavour but lacking in oomph in a way that makes this drinker very sad. Bring it back to its full streingh please :(
