It’s no secret that we in Australia incur some of the highest taxes on alcoholic goods in the world. Notable spirit genres have been mainstreamed to alcoholic volumes (ABV) well below that of European markets in order to keep prices low, but at what cost to quality?
We’ve noticed the sudden ABV drops of brands such as Blanton’s, Wild Turkey and Pusser’s in recent times, with past experiences leading us to conclude that these reductions are rarely favourable to flavour. Let’s hope this isn’t the end of what has been one of the best Bourbon buys on the Australian market for some time.
Buffalo Trace has been making legendary bourbon whiskey for over 220 years through prohibition and two world wars. The Buffalo Trace distillery has been awarded ‘Distillery of the Year’ 7 times and Buffalo Trace has been award over 22 national and international awards. The whiskey shows wonderful aromas of vanilla, mint and molasses which follows through on the palate with notes of brown sugar and spice. A long and dry finish rounds off what is a truly great whiskey.
