    Dont be alarmed.. but drinking Stagg straight.. might result in a black colored tounge..... the morning after.


    But, I do like buffalo trace.. and expecially in the larger sized 1.75L bottle.

    Re: Buffalo Trace

    My wife and I both enjoy Buffalo Trace. It's one of the bourbons we like to sip neat on Saturday evening. The others include OGD114, Weller Antique 107, and EC12. All of these selections are available locally for between $21 and $23, and we consider them good values.
    Cheers to the makers of Buffalo Trace!

    I must confess to never having tried BT. I've made a note to try and hunt down a bottle when I'm out and about, mail ordering would cost almost £30 which I gather is rather overpriced. Should really make the effort considering I intend to visit them next summer.

    Re: Buffalo Trace

    Welcome aboard, Parker! I bought my first bottle of BT about a month ago, and I wasn't particularly impressed with my first 2 (or so) tastes. It has quickly grown on me, however, and has since edged its way onto my list of favorites (particularly "bargain" category favorites).

    I'm a big fan of BT! Not my normal sip but I do enjoy it.
    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".

    Re: Buffalo Trace

    It's one of the world's great injustices: Buffalo Trace isn't available in New Jersey. Just about every other label from the BT distillery is, like Van Winkle, Stagg, Eagle Rare, Hancock, Elmer T Lee, etc, etc., all of which I enjoy. For reasons I don't understand, though, Buffalo Trace isn't carried anywhere in NJ. I have to go to PA to find it. That said, it's great stuff, arguably the best there is for its price.

    No, it's not the same, but Old Charter and Eagle Rare are the same mash bill as Buffalo Trace. Profiling (the good kind) is the reason two brands with the same mash bill and similar ages can taste different, but if I couldn't get BT I would consider the Eagle Rare single barrel (the 10-year-old) a pretty good alternative.

    How about the mashbills for Eagle Rare Single barrel 10yo and the now long gone Eagle Rare 101? Same?
    And what was the original intent for the bourbon that they bottle for George T Stagg?

    Oscar, my guess is that at least some of it would have been used to level out and maintain the profile of ER 10 and OC 12 year old & Proprietor's Reserve (both of the OC in particular has always tasted to me older than their age statements). By dropping the proof of the former and removing the latter pair, they've freed up more whiskey to charge us $50+ for.

    I'm sure there was another purpose for some of it, of course, though the purpose all along may have been some sort of extra-aged or premium product.

    Regards,
