    Buffalo Trace is not available everywhere in Texas. You can get it in Dallas and Houston, but forget about it in Austin and San Antonio. I guess there just isn't enough of the pour to go around. Good for the price ($20), but better can be had for the same money. Actually, it is pretty tasty...now I want some.

I may get this one to have around for times when we have company who would like to drink bourbon, but won't necessarily appreciate the qualities of some of my more expensive bottles.
    I agree it is worth having on the shelf. I would even buy it again.

    I usually see it for about $20/bottle. It's a decent bourbon with a great nose, but I was a little underwhelmed given the hype I'd heard about it.

    Buffalo Trace = Sam Houston's ????

    Does anyone think that Sam Houston (which I've only seen in Texas BTW), is really just Buffalo Trace in a fancy bottle?

    Sam Houston and its bunker-mate Jefferson's Reserve are bottled by Mclain and kyne "Distillery." It's not really a distillery though, as they simply bottle whiskey purchased from someone else; presumably Heaven Hill. Both are somewhat overpriced IMO.

    I agree. It's sitting in my office [read "client justified office stash"] but I was a tad disappointed in Sam Houston. I thought it had a little bite on the aftertaste -- a tiny bit like Jack Daniels etc. like there is nothing to mellow the rye portion. Don't get me wrong, it will still be drunk within next six months...
