Buffalo Trace-White Oak Station Barrel Selection: Review

FullSizeRender (6)

45% alcohol/Vol 90 Proof

Buffalo Trace was one of our first favorite daily drinkers when started getting into the good stuff. Back then, it was always available and pretty well-priced. And then the Pappy craze took off and ended up with this distant relation disappearing off store shelves. Now we almost always pick it up when it’s available. This is the first time we’ve found a barrel selection for this well-respected brand.

Nose

The nose caramel, vanilla, and chocolate.  The secondary scents are pound cake and a touch of smoke.  It smells like the most delicious dessert with a torched sugar candy shell.

Eye

The appearance is auburn honey with medium thick legs.

Mouth

The initial tasting notes are caramel, toasted oak, and black cherry walnuts.  The secondary flavors are tobacco and chocolate.  The finish is medium and creamy, with hints of vanilla, cinnamon, warm oak, and chocolate.  This is a wonderful barrel pick under $35, for me there isn’t anything not to love.  I could easily make this my daily drinker.
