    I know that the distributor will be sold out until March/April in Eastern TN. But I don't think it's being disco-ed.

    Re: Is Buffalo Trace a good "go to" pour?

    What is a "go to" pour? I'm not understanding. I have Buffalo Trace and I'm happy (or maybe I'm not) to say it's almost gone. I bought it on sale for $18.99 (750ml). The only other bourbon I had was Old Grand Dad.

    So I will be in the market now for my 3rd bottle. But....this Buffalo Trace....I really like it (of course that is based on only tasting 1 other bourbon). Out of all the spirits I own (Tres Mujeres Tequila, Rubi Rey Rum, Sobieski Vodka, Dewar's 12 Year Old blended whiskey, Claude Chatelier XO Extra Cognac), it disappeared the fastest. In other words, I liked it a lot so I keep pouring. Needless to say, it was the last spirit I purchased also. So..you get an idea.

    But what is defined a 'go to' pour?

    You're always "goin' to" the bottle to pour ya some more. Alternately, its something that is flavorful enough to be satisfying but its not overly challenging and so you find yourself frequently "goin' to" the bottle to pour ya some more.

    And yes, Buffalo Trace, for a lot of us, fits that description.

    Re: Is Buffalo Trace a good "go to" pour?

    I've only tried it once, and I hated it. Supposedly the bottle I got was hand selected by one of the reps from the liquor board in my county. It was terrible, I had a couple pours and had to hand it over to a "friend". I would buy it again though, because I've heard good things, and it can't be that bad. Maybe the rep was a vodka drinker..??

    Last I heard was that it would be available again in mid to late Spring. Just none right now.

    Besides Eagle Rare Single Barrel I would say that Buffalo Trace is my least favorite bourbon from the Buffalo Trace Distillery.

    Those are some harsh words, don't totally agree. Then again I had to wait for quite a long time before I tasted the standard Buffalo Trace.

    I do enjoy the Eagle Rare SB though. To each his own, it would be boring if we all liked the same pours.

    Nah, those aren't harsh words, of all the bourbons that Buffalo Trace produces ERSB is at the bottom of my list and BT is one notch up.
    Something has to be on the bottom.

    Oscar, is it the tea leave smell/taste of the ER that bothers you?

    ER is weak and boring to me, no depth, quick finish.
    Also I still have a chip on my shoulder from them dropping ER101.
    Now that is one of my all time favorites.
