Buffalo Trace vs Old Forester Comparison
Buffalo Trace vs Old Forester 86
Two sub-$30 bourbons (sometimes) face-off
How do they compare?
And the winner is...
- Buffalo Trace doesn’t have that metallic, vodka-y, and somewhat unenjoyable alcohol flavor. It’s not overpowering, but it definitely sticks out enough to be a dealbreaker and push me towards Buffalo Trace. It’s an unfortunate part of an otherwise good bourbon.
- Slightly richer flavors
- I prefer the more vibrant, tropical, and fruity traits. So, the winner for you depends on what you like.
