From the Buffalo Trace website:“Ancient buffalo carved paths through the wilderness that led American pioneers and explorers to new frontiers. One such trail led to the banks of the Kentucky River where Buffalo Trace Distillery has been making bourbon whiskey the same way for more than 200 years. In tribute to the mighty buffalo and the rugged, independent spirit of the pioneers who followed them, we created our signature Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.”

Some still can buy it every day for under ~$30 without issue, and some can’t find it at all. For better or worse, that is what has become of bourbon – a lot of demand, and very uneven distribution.So is Buffalo Trace really that good and worth chasing? I can’t necessarily answer that question for you directly, but you can use my experience as another factor in your decision making and education. Let’s see how this “gateway” bourbon holds up in this Buffalo Trace Bourbon review.
