Buffalo Trace

whiskyspeller_dbtd_bourbon_10

The bourbon advent calendar from Drinks by the Dram, door number 10, revealed a sample of Buffalo Trace bottled at 40%. On the nose a sweet dram with spice and vanilla. A light mint and citrus note between the black pepper, toffee and cinnamon.

On the palate I am getting spices, sweet vanilla, waxy, rye, toffee, honey sweetness with vanilla and raisins. Red caramel apples, some demerara sugar, touch of espresso bitter and chocolate sweetness. Bit liquerish note in the back with some oranges.

Not a very long and mostly sugar cane sweet finish with a good dose of vanilla and toffee and a light dryness of cinnamon and wood spices. Find it mostly sweet and not standing out to be honest, curious to see what tomorrow will bring with door number 11. Thanks Drinks by the Dram for sharing this sample!
