    BOTM, 10/05: Buffalo Trace

    A close runner up in last month's BOTM poll, but second to none in quality and value. Buffalo Trace, both as a brand and a distillery, embodies all of the tradition of the past, and the best of the modern art of bourbon making. Join me in raising a glass in honor of October's BOTM: Buffalo Trace

    Now what say you?

    Re: BOTM, 10/05: Buffalo Trace

    Too funny, I opened a new bottle on Saturday and have been working on it alone for the last 4 days. We (my work partners and I) had today off so we decided to take yet another tour of the distillery. I asked about the ETA of the Stagg, it will be bottled in about 2 weeks and will take another 2 weeks to hit the shelves. They were doing Blantons today. I was told Elmer was on site today, but we didn't run into him. Buffalo Trace is still my favorite, followed closely by Elmer T. Lee and Elijah Craig.

    I will get a bottle at the first opportunity. I have an open bottle about a quarter full. I will get a new one and do a side by side.

    I enjoyed Wild Turkey Rare Breed last month though I haven't yet posted much about it. I drank quite a few different of Wild Turkey expressions as well. I can tell you this right now. They were all great!

    I have an open bottle (half full) of Kentucky Spirit sitting next to my laptop, I like the BT MUCH better. And at about half the price, that's convenient...

    Ed,

    Feel free to continue to comment on past BOTMs. While their threads are no longer pinned to the top of the forum, they are still open and awaiting your remarks.

    Re: BOTM, 10/05: Buffalo Trace

    I have been attempting to clear out (drink up!) my current bottles of Sazerac and Eagle Rare 17 to make room for the new ones coming out shortly. However, I decided to sample my first bourbon of the month, that being Wild Turkey Rare Breed (last years edition).

    When I first got it I sampled it a few times and didn't know whether I really liked it or not. The last two samplings I took of it have been great. Lots of really nice flavors without any real bite to it if you ask me. It also goes REALLY nice with a cigar. This and Evan Williams Single Barrel have been my favorite stogie drinks thus far.

    I will have some Buffalo Trace this weekend, I'm about 3/4 way through the bottle, and post that as well.

    Re: BOTM, 10/05: Buffalo Trace

    I'm a little over halfway through my first bottle of Buffalo Trace. This is the the Binny's Single Barrel version. I must say it is very good, and gets better and better after every drink. Now typically, I'm not good with any kind of tasting notes like some people here. I know what I like but I couldn't tell you whether it tasted like fresh fruit or fresh tobacco. However, this one is a little different. As God is my witness, I actually can compare it to something now!!! When, I was drinking it last night I could actually taste clove. Then, the aftertaste was like those little cinnamon mints you get in a tin. Yeah, my tasting notes need work but that's what it reminds me of. Anyway, wonderful bourbon and I can't wait til it comes to California on a regular basis!

    I just recently tried my first bottle of BT. I didn't like it at all. Too musty and dank. Most that post here seem to like it. I was disappointed.
