    great post as usual!

  2. Douglas A. Keeler says

    This excellent bourbon reminds me a great deal of Old Charter 10 or 12, which disappeared about the time Buffalo Trace was aquired by an outfit from New Orleans. Makes a great Manhattan.

  3. Lynda Morelli says

    my husband and I were down in Kentucky and we toured Buffalo Trace. It Ed a great tour, while there we purchased a liquor. We have forgotten the name can someone please refresh my memory.

  4. John Libonati says

    I love this bourbon. It has a great aroma of banana skin, caramel and brown sugar (think bananas foster), the palate is full bodied with great flavors of cooked caramel, vanilla and minimal alcohol heat with just one ice cube. I live this inexpensive bourbon with a light splash or small ice cube.
