Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Sazerac Company ~ Buffalo Trace Distillery

The nose bears caramel notes with a delicate stone-fruit backdrop. A robust and sturdy palate with some fine leather notes mingling with dry tobacco, a touch of oak and a hint of dried cherries. The finish is smooth and calming.
