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?
And yes, Buffalo Trace, for a lot of us, fits that description.
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..??
Besides Eagle Rare Single Barrel I would say that Buffalo Trace is my least favorite bourbon from the Buffalo Trace Distillery.
God gave me wisdom but the Devil gave me style!
