The nose bears caramel notes with a delicate stone-fruit backdrop. A robust and sturdy palate with some fine leather notes mingling with dry tobacco, a touch of oak and a hint of dried cherries. The finish is smooth and calming.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 89 points - Delectable nose of ripe peach, candied orange peel and honeysuckle scents mingle with deeper aromas of warm biscuits and vanilla bean. Rich and slightly honeyed with brown sugar, dark cherry and toasted almond flavors coming forward. Wonderfully structured and lengthy finish. (Apr 2014)
Named after the McAfee brothers who surveyed a site just north of Frankfort in the late 1700s, this rye recipe bourbon is yet another label that honors the storied history of the Distillery and the land it sits on.
|More than just a spirit, more than just whiskey, this bourbon is a tribute to all that is uniquely American - a celebration of our country's rugged history, its fight for freedom and independence, and the fierce pride governing its heritage. Inside each bottle is the essence of courage, a sense of adventure, a quest for the unknown and a thirst for discovery. This is the legend and legacy of our rich ancestry, captured and embodied by Buffalo Trace Distillery.
