Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Sazerac Company ~ Buffalo Trace Distillery

Dark chocolate, caramel with earthy undertones of walnut and hazelnut on the nose. The palate delivers warm vanilla, oak, toasted nuts and a rich spiciness with hints of butterscotch or honey. The high alcohol by volume is intense and powerful, yet inviting. Un-filtered, un-cut, unbelievable.
