    Had my first sip of Buffalo Trace last night.

    Not being much of a bourbon sipper in the warmer weather I decided to prechill the glass and open a new bottle of BT. I was pleasantly surprised at the smoothness, the pallet and the finish. Hell, my wife even liked it and she doesn't care for bourbon. I'll be proccuring more in the future.

    BTW, can you get BT in the family size? (1.75L)
    As he removed the cork from the bottle of bourbon, he threw it across the room and said, "we ain't gonna need that no more".

    I bought one at Spec's in Houston about four years ago. Hopefully it's still available.

    Yes, pretty widely available in Southern California.

    The 1.75's are definitely available.

    At the end of the tour of the Buffalo Trace Distillery, they offer you a shot of Buffalo Trace bourbon. It's served chilled, as the bottle they pour from is taken out of the fridge. Great minds think alike, Jim!

    Cheers!

    I get the "Big Boy" at BevMo. It is plentiful, and so well worth it. I drink it every way one can enjoy a Bourbon. It also has that classic BT finish, with that taste of what is to come. Blanton's and Rock Hill Farms..if I am not mistaken.

    BT really seems to have it going on right now. From their name brand right on through to julios stuff, BTAC, and the experimental. The quest for a perfect bourbon while crazy is a worthy pursuit. IMHO

    It makes a nice coin jar after you finish it, and it looks really cool on a bar too!
