Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Sazerac Company ~ Buffalo Trace Distillery

It has a slightly floral nose that conveys whispers of cedar and raisin in between soft vanilla notes. The palate has a light airy feel to it. The taste of vanilla and toffee dance around subtle notes of dried fruit and white pepper.
