Customer Rating
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.

    Terrific whisky. My first bourbon after fancying trying one instead of adding another scotch to my cabinet. I love the almost Rioja vanilla & oaky nose and the taste is surprisingly not too sweet and the sherried finish is great.

    This is a NAS product. It is also a low rye mashbill. Bourbons cannot compete with the malts, since Age Statements generally stop where Age Statements for Malts begin. One can purchase bourbon which has more robust flavor for 1/3rd less approximately. In the US, Bonded means for Bourbon a minimum 4 years in a govt. warehouse, and distillery and bottler identified on each bottle. BT is not Bonded. I sooner have Bushmill's Black Bush - it has the nose, palate and finish above the BT at the same price.

    Lovely sipping bourbon. Sweet fruit cake taste with a very smooth finish. For the money it's one of the best you can buy, puts some of the higher priced products to shame.

    Just bought a bottle, yes it isn't the most expensive of Bourbons, and was bought for a weekly evening sipping with feet up reading a book. Slightly disappointing to be honest. It tastes watery, not much body. Smells great and much better than Jack D. Not bad but not great. I guess you gets what you pay for.

    Excellent bourbon. Smooth and not at all cloying. Far superior to the mainstream ''trendy'' brands.

    Nice enough bourbon. Compared to some, in or slightly above this in terms of price, it is a little rough around the edges however a smooth finish makes up for this. If ?20 is all you want to spend, then it is a good solid choice. Only piece of advice, it really does improve with an ice cube

    The nicest bourbon I have had to date. Picked this up when it was first introduced and I now cannot be without a bottle in the house. Tried other, more expensive bourbons but this draws top trump.

    I'm not well versed in the world of Bourbons, however this is by far my favorite Bourbon I have tasted to date. I still come back to it even after trying others out there. At the price as well it's a bargain. It holds it's flavor however you have it. I prefer to sip it straight, however with a cube or two of ice it is still excellent. I wouldn't put coke it in however, show some respect, it isn't JD.

    Love it but only had the UK version… until tonight when my US based inlaws bring back a Stateside bottling. Looking forward to it. Great value and so much flavour compared to the poor big namers. My other fav is eagle rare but that is a good 12? more expensive.

    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

  • MolesFriend 18 April 2014

    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......

  • Anonymous 28 February 2014

    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
